Toddler, 18 months–3 years
The toddler program’s environment encourages freedom of movement, an atmosphere of respect, and the growth of independence.
The routine for the classroom is structured to support the child’s strong need for order and predictability. The classroom is organized with shelves holding activities for the different areas of the curriculum – Practical Life, Sensorial, Cognitive, and Language Development. All furniture and shelves are child-sized so that the child can choose and access work independently. Based on continual observations, the teachers rotate the materials to meet the children’s ever-changing developmental needs and interests.
