Our toddler program, the Sparrows, is an early development program designed for active, curious and mobile toddlers. We offer a fun and safe atmosphere that encourages physical, emotional and intellectual growth. Because this will be one of the busiest times in your child’s life, our teachers are energetic, engaging, and ready to help each toddler explore the world around them. They read, sing and play throughout the day which results in vocabulary advances for every child.
Children at this stage have moved beyond infancy and are now mastering more complex skills that are needed for activities like painting, coloring, dancing, running, puzzles, imaginary play and games. Our curriculum recognizes that toddlers learn best by having opportunities to explore objects using ALL of their senses.
Why is a box often more enticing to a toddler than the toy within the box ? Because a box can be:
- Banged on
- Sat on
- Sat in
We pay careful attention to your toddler’s play because it points to their interests, and that’s how learning opportunities are created!
