The toddler room is designed
to have more opportunities for
self-exploration and complex play.
Toddlers engage in academic pursuits, scientific inquiry, art studies, math concepts, purposeful play, problem solving and mindfulness.
Students engage in etiquette
and social emotional problem solving; for example, how to be a good friend, taking turns, and sharing.
We support their ability to self regulate their emotions and calm themselves down with a little less teacher support as they grow older.
Age appropiate furnishings encourage different types of dramatic play with blocks, art, music, and science. When these furnishings are authentic and placed properly, children's play increases in quality and depth.
“Learning to use the toilet is a natural process that begins when your child’s desire to be grown up and his neurological development have reached the point where he can control his bladder and bowels.
