Toddler

Our toddler program includes children between 12 months – 2.5 years old. We focus on our four pillars of learning: Language/Literacy, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math), physical activity/nutrition and mindful awareness. We provide child-initiated and teacher-supported learning experiences to foster children’s natural curiosity, exploration, play and inquiry.

In the toddler program, there is a special emphasis on sensory-based activities because, as we know, toddlers learn best by exploring while using their senses. We use our senses to explore literacy as well as science, math and engineering concepts. We introduce children to numbers, shapes, colours and letters by incorporating these concepts into the child’s play and exploration. Teachers will plan various creative activities based on the interests of the child as we aim to keep activities fresh and engaging. For more details, visit the Curriculum page.

We ensure that the interest areas in the toddler classrooms include materials to spark their imagination and learning including: blocks, table toys/puzzles, book, dramatic, science and sensory areas. The toys and planned activities in each interest area are changed weekly depending on the children’s interests.

When it comes to potty training, we work closely with the parents to encourage it when the child shows interest and readiness. We assist parents with this process to ensure success!
