Toddler

Toddler Room (18 months - 2½ years)

Our Toddler Room is licensed for 10 Toddlers who require 2 qualified Educators.

All allergies and food/drink preferences are posted in the program and in the kitchen. The children’s days are documented on a whiteboard for parents to see exactly what they have eaten throughout the day, how long they slept and their change/potty times. We encourage children that are in diapers to try the potty once the child/parents have initiated that interest. For children that are potty training we ask that parents provide many changes of clothes during this time, because accidents do happen. Program routines are also posted in the program along with a visual schedule for the children to follow along. Our consistent routines give the children a sense of predictability so they are comfortable with the day and transitions. We believe that children learn through play and provide many different experiences and activities to foster this growth. We follow the Emergent Curriculum which follows the children’s leads. We take something that they have shown an interest in and expand on that knowledge and learning through conversation, experiments and activities focused on that topic. Circles and activities are always focused on early learning concepts such as: colours, numbers, letters and language. The Toddlers go outside twice a day, weather permitting, for fresh air and gross motor development. On days when the weather is too hot or too cold they go downstairs into our gym to achieve these daily goals.
