Our Toddlers, generally aged from 12 months to 24 months, are a busy group indeed! Learning to perfect the art of walking, climbing, sliding and riding helps build their gross motor skills that are essential as the children progress from infancy to toddlerhood. This stage is a critical time for us to help build the foundation of their self-confidence.
Community Christian Day School places great emphasis on the individuality of each child. Our trained staff are educated in the care of young children and are certified in CPR and First Aid. Together they provide the environment for your toddler to grow and develop at his/her own pace in an atmosphere of comfort, security and love. We further enhance that uniqueness by offering a an environment which allows time for positive interaction between the teacher and toddler. This is essential for bonding and building self-esteem. Psychologists state that proper bonding is a prerequisite for building sound relationships which will last a lifetime. Individual development and growth is a key concept in our program. All children are given opportunities to increase their gross and fine motor skills through exploration of various manipulative materials and developmentally appropriate toys and equipment. Our toddler classroom has been specially designed to promote the key learning experiences of early childhood development.
Our curriculum is an interactive, thematic, and conceptual based curriculum which includes group and individual opportunities. Our lesson plans are designed to keep toddlers' young minds as active as their toddling bodies. We introduce many concepts including colors, shapes and community helpers. Self-help skills such as feeding themselves, beginning potty training, dressing skills, independence and self-confidence are fostered in our young toddlers. We offer activities for children to explore their world through art, music and creative movement in a challenging and stimulating environment.
We welcome your child to our Toddler Program and are delighted to share with you the excitement and joys of your toddler's day-to-day development. We consider it a privilege to be part of that growth and development, and look forward to a wonderful relationship with you and your child.
