Our toddler program is specifically designed for our one year old children. Transitioning from the infant environment is an exciting time for both parents and their child. There are lots of changes happening all at once with learning to walk, transitioning to table food, sleeping on a cot instead of a crib, and officially beginning curriculum. My Small Wonders’ toddler program is here to support families during this time – we’re delighted to be a part of your family.
At My Small Wonders, toddlers work on their emerging skills through a variety of age-appropriate activities that encourage creativity and a positive self-image. Our enthusiastic teachers introduce music, movement, and art activities that stimulate the senses and challenge each child at their individual state of development. Through manipulative toys, imaginative play, and engaging activities, toddlers are able to explore facets of their world in a safe, structured environment.
Because there are so many of these big milestone changes during this time, My Small Wonders purposefully splits our toddlers into two separate groups – younger toddlers and older toddlers.
Additionally, our curriculum begins in our toddler classes, with a weekly theme, letter, color, shape, number, and concept. Each day, the activities and curriculum help teach and reinforce these items as the children are beginning to learn. We also begin to introduce classroom activities like “circle time”, which help your child build vocabulary and stimulate verbal communications while helping to develop small and large motor skills.
Teachers offer positive guidance as our toddlers move through each stage of development. Hands-on learning activities help your child develop beginning readiness skills. At this important stage, your toddler will explore the world of dramatic play, creative expression, art, music, socialization, and many more important skills and concepts. Playground time is also an important part of a toddlers day. Our playgrounds are designed for the curious toddler with climbers, bike paths, tree houses and animals to help a toddler’s imagination soar!
