Older Toddler Room

Approach

In the older toddler room we have children who range from the ages of 24 to 36 months.  The teachers guide these young children’s social and emotional growth.

They explore many different themes such as community helpers, music and art, seasons and weather, and family and culture.  They learn concepts that include, but are not limited to friendship, respect, making good choices and prayer.

They also work with your child on potty training.
