Young Toddler Room

Approach

In the young toddler room we have children who range from the ages of 12 to 23 months. The teachers guide these young children’s social and emotional growth. They teach the children the beginnings of sharing, taking turns, and playing together with others. They also work on their cognition (brain development), language, and motor skills through reading, art activities, gym and play times, and learning through everyday activities that involve counting, singing, colors, and naming objects.
