Our Toddler Program

Based on years of experience, education, and best practices, we have created ideal learning environments designed for the best interest and well-being of children as they grow.  Our Toddler Room is for children who are 15-33 months.

The toddler program builds on each child’s skills, adding new physical and cognitive competencies.

Toddlers are keenly interested in exploring their world as they learn to live in a social environment with other children and adults.

We do all activities and speak to the kids almost entirely in Spanish throughout the day. There are organized circle times (curriculum periods) every day. The kids sit in their high chairs or at the play table and have an activity in art, music, drama, science (facts about animals, seasons, our world), cooking, numbers, making things with their hands, or using scissors.

We spend time reading stories in English and Spanish each day. Children learn counting, colors, foods, and animal names in Spanish. The kids play outside in our fenced in backyard play area twice a day, all year long.

 

We read stories in Spanish and English throughout the day.
