Classroom Guides - Toddlers Room (Oak Creek)

Return to Our Curriculum Main Page

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!

Teachers

Alyssa
Hello Families, I have been working here at Learning Edge since 2015. I love all the little personalities of the children and being able to watch them grow. I am currently pursing my dental hygienist degree at MATC. In my free time, I greatly enjoy camping, swimming, hanging out with family, and playing with my cat. I look forward to meeting the new families and children that start in my classroom.

Ms. Breanna
Hi! My name is Breanna and I have been with Learning Edge since April 2010. I am certified as a Lead childcare teacher and have training in SBS, CAN, CPR/AED & first aid. I also continue my education every year with trainings, workshops and college courses. I come from a large family with eight siblings, which is probably why I enjoy working with children. I currently teach childrens dance classes and I previously volunteered as an elementary school tutor.

Kelly
Hi! My name is Kelly. I started here in February of 2005, but have been working in childcare since 1999. My qualifications include: Lead and Assistant teacher certifications, infant/toddler certified, various early childhood education credits and continuing education hours, CPR/AED and first aid certified. I love to spend time with friends and family in any free time I have. Feel free to stop and say hi when you see me around the center. I look forward to making a difference every day with the wonderful children we have here!

Cognitive & Sensory

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).
