Through supervised play in a planned, stimulating environment, wobblers rapidly acquire a foundation of basic skills and capacities during the first two years as motor skills develop and early language begins. Toys and materials are selected to help the development of gross and fine motor skills. While still needing a nurturing, secure environment, wobblers begin to explore their independence and start developing the beginnings of emotional and social stages.
Our staff understands the developmental needs of the wobbler and introduces activities that help in the appropriate developmental stages of the 1 to 2-year-old. Our daily activities encourage our children to be more hands-on and explore their environment to gain sensorial experiences.
A multi-fold curriculum is introduced to the toddlers that helps develop the traces of complex thinking and important social and emotional developments that occur during the toddler years. Learning to navigate through interest areas in the classroom and rotating in small groups help the toddler learn through a hands-on, creative, fun environment as academics are presented in an appropriate setting that meets the developmental needs of a 2 to 3-year-old.
Weekly lesson plans are based around seasonal activities to keep children engaged in the learning process. For example, during October, we will learn about harvesting, pumpkins, Halloween, and scarecrows!
We encourage communication with parents and teachers because we value the relationship and want to help build a sense of community. We use an application called BrightWheel as a way for parents to keep track of their child’s daily progress. BrightWheel allows teachers to send photos, videos, and daily reports of the children, and parents can message the teachers instantly with any questions or concerns.
