In our room we strive to provide a comprehensive program that promotes spiritual, physical, emotional, creative and cognitive growth and development. Our goals in the older toddler room are to help children separate and transition easily, fostering a sense of security by creating a warm, nurturing and inviting environment. Emphasis is placed on social interaction, age appropriate activities and themes that are fun and stimulating. The children learn to identify letters, numbers, colors and shapes
They develop their fine motor skills with crayons, paints, puzzles, blocks and various art activities. Value is placed on a daily positive experience. Our schedule is flexible while maintaining general classroom routines.
