OUR TODDLER PROGRAMS
Early Horizons offers two classrooms for the toddler age group, The Toddler Turtles and the Toddler Tree Frogs. Both implement the same curriculum, basic structure, and nurturing care.
Each of our toddler classrooms begin with an age-appropriate environment that encourages children to learn, play and explore. For toddlers this means encouraging a variety of gross motor activities such as balancing, climbing, jumping, and crawling. The LifeStart curriculum we follow at Early Horizons reflects our nurturing caregivers who encourage language development through books, puppets, songs, and stories. We supply blocks, paper, crayons, paint and playdough for those first attempts at creating their very own masterpieces. In our toddler programs we begin to introduce the concept of “circle time” and continuously reinforce positive social skills. Besides an endless assortment of activities that engage their interests and stimulate their minds, our toddlers find laps for sitting and lots of hugs.
The toddler classrooms' daily schedules reflect the fact that toddlers need consistency and thrive on routines. While we don't make any child do anything they are not ready for, we do support the structure they require to meet their growing needs.
Teachers keep in touch with parents throughout the day using our private facebook page and a personally tailored daily report, as well as in depth verbal communication at the start and end of each day.
