Young Toddler

Young Toddler classrooms are for children 12 months to 24 months of age. The focus of these classrooms is to provide newly mobile toddlers with plenty of opportunities to explore in a safe, clean environment. Our classrooms have plenty of space, offering areas for sleeping, playing, eating, and changing diapers. Play stations are organized by areas of interest; a section for quiet play and another for more active play. Toddlers can play alone or in small groups. Secure areas, both inside and out, provide opportunities for challenging active play that is developmentally appropriate for young toddlers.

Interesting materials are provided for toddlers to use their senses to explore—objects to bang, materials to scoop and squeeze. Our child-size furniture is sturdy and safe, allowing for more independence. Books are carefully selected to reflect the children’s cultures. We follow developmentally appropriate practice, based on each child’s age and stage of development – encompassing physical, social/emotional, cognitive, and language development. Our relationships with families are based on respect, communication, and openness.
