Welcome to the Toddler Room
We would like to welcome you to the toddler room. In this room, we encourage the development of large motor skills such as walking and balance, climbing, dancing, and running through interactive movement activities.
Small motor skills are developed through various everyday activities such as using a spoon, painting with tools, and sorting toys. Social skills are developed during group snack time, lunch, art, music, and reading time. Children experience a wide variety of options while using the multipurpose room and during outside time. We participate in daily outdoor activities unless there is inclement weather. Although we do have a daily schedule, times may vary due to each child’s individual schedule and sleeping patterns. In Toddler A we encourage the use of a sipper cup and work on introducing new table foods, supplied by Learning Edge. Most of the children in our class are learning to eat table foods so parents are able to look at the monthly menu and inform us which items they will be bringing in a substitution for, and they also let us know which foods are okay to serve to their child each day.
We are always available for any questions or concerns that you may have. Please feel free to give us a call during the day to check in during this transition. We look forward to caring for your child!
Please make sure you have:
We supply blankets, bibs, and crib/cot sheets so there is no need to bring those things. (But you are more than welcome to bring them from home if you want.)
Please label everything with your child's name!!
Please note: These are flexible schedules, subject to change, and all outdoor activities are weather permitting. Children are not required to be on these schedules and naps/eating times are adjusted as needed.
Through the use of finger plays and songs we enhance each child's motor skills as well as cognitive skills. They learn simple things like waving, clapping, peek-a-boo, signing "more," etc. By doing art projects with the children we enhance sensory skills through finger painting, making foot and handprints, and by playing with different textures (for example: cool whip, water and soap, pudding, yogurt).
