Our toddler curriculum is based on providing each child with a large variety of activities and experiences, which encourage growth and learning. According to Piaget’s theory of cognitive development, children construct knowledge from their actions in the environment. Children also learn some things such as names through social transmission.
For this reason, our curriculum focuses on providing children with an environment that encourages their explorations and involvement in activities that help them to construct knowledge. In addition, children will be exposed to a language-rich environment that will help facilitate their developing language skills and encourage social interactions.
The following is a listing of specific curriculum areas and how they relate to the developing child’s growth needs.
Free play is a period of time when a child chooses from a wide variety of games, toys, puzzles, or gross motor activities. Children gain a newfound sense of independence through mobility, and this freedom of choice allows them to further exercise this skill. Games, toys, and puzzles are specifically selected to meet the child’s development needs.
