Toddler: 24 to 30 months

Our toddler curriculum has been designed to enhance your toddler’s learning as he or she makes friends, builds vocabulary to communicate wants and needs, and shares toys.  Our caregivers will encourage your child’s independence as he or she explores the world while letting him or her know that someone they depend on is always within reach when support is needed.

Circle Time

During this daily large group interaction, children enjoy singing songs, reading, and doing finger-plays.  Concepts are learned through engaging group games and conversations.  While circle time is brief with this age group, this part of the day is packed with fun and educational activities such as alphabet, number, shape, and color introduction.

Learning Center Activities

Starting in the Toddler Room, we make use of separate, learning domain focused centers to introduce the structure that they will experience in our K-Prep preschool program.  Socially, we will support your toddler as they learn that different behavior is appropriate in different settings.

Exploring with the Senses

Toddlers discover our complex world through their five senses.  Sensorial learning is encouraged by providing a stimulating environment that offers time for your child to explore.  Days are filled with opportunities to develop creativity using paints, crayons, and play dough.  Dramatic play performances such as playing house and dressing up expands your toddler’s imagination and our teachers often partner in their play.

Pedal’s Potty Training Program

We are committed to making potty training a positive experience by implementing a program that is both exciting for your child and easy to use at home as well.  Our Woodland Friend, Pedal Rabbit, helps promote healthy choices and good hygiene in our toddlers and preschoolers through our custom Apple Sticker Rewards System.  Certificates, cards, and encouragement are provided from Pedal as your child experiences the potty training process.  We encourage and invite parents to inform us when they feel their son or daughter is ready to begin our program.  Our Toddler Room teachers know that working collaboratively with parents will help us provide each child with fundamentals needed for potty training success.
