Our toddler rooms daily schedules are made to allow plenty of time to focus on creative art, sensory experiences, fine motor and gross motor development, and language development. The learning plans offer ideas for creative art and sensory experiences to explore through discovery; the fine motor area focuses on grasping and eye/hand coordination; the gross motor area focuses on using large muscle development, and the language area focuses on using words to express needs. An important emphasis for this age is emotional development, which includes helping children feel good about themselves and their abilities is a primary focus.
Older toddlers are eager and enthusiastic learners and are nurtured and challenged through group play and language development. The learning schedule for this classroom offers activities in the areas of creative art, nature, fine motor, physical fitness and songs. The important emphasis for children of this age is socialization: such as sharing and taking turns, and cooperation in a group environment.
