Toddler

Our toddler programs includes children between 12 months – 2.5 years old. We have two toddler classes: Junior Toddlers and Senior Toddlers. We have split the toddler group into Junior and Senior classes to allow for better programming for children according to their age and stage of development. Our Jr. Toddler Room is for children between 12-23 months. Our Sr. Toddler Room is for children between 24-30 months.

In both toddler programs, there is an emphasis on sensory-based activities because, as we know, toddlers learn best by exploring while using their senses. At this age, we start to develop academic skills through an introduction 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.

Music and movement is a fundamental part of the program as well. When you visit the daycare, you will always hear children’s music playing in the background as it fosters a happy and active environment.

Toddlers also participate in the award-winning Kindermusik program once per week.

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 and sensory areas. The toys and planned activities in each interest area are changed weekly depending on the children’s interests.

Circle time is an important time at Alpha’s where the teacher will engage with the children as a large group. Our teachers will read to toddlers as a large group as it helps to develop their attention and circle time skills.

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!

We play outside twice a day in our covered and secure outdoor playground to engage the children in activities that promote active movement and physical activity.

Jr. Preschool
