Toddler

The Toddler program offers a safe, loving and stimulating environment, which caters to a child’s basic needs of trust and nurturing. The program is divided in two sections, an Explorer/Young Toddler section (approximately 12-22 month old children), and Toddler Section (approximately 22 – 32 month old children). The Toddler curriculum provides self-paced and individualized learning through interaction with and within the prepared environment. Through this program, children progressively achieve their developmental milestones in emotional, physical, social, linguistic and cognitive skills. Respect and encouragement is given to each child’s emerging personalities. Toddler classrooms and outdoor play facilities are carefully designed for ‘learning through discovery’ and provide opportunities for play and exploration.
