Promoting Creativity, Confidence, and Agility
During this age period, children possess an intense curiosity and fascination for the world surrounding them. Our knowledgeable child care staff knows that this newfound creativity requires a safe and stimulating outlet, which is why we engage in activities like counting, crating, painting, rhyming, and talking on a daily basis. Our small classroom setting is the perfect environment to promote cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development.
Cognitive: As early learners try to make sense of the world, form organized thoughts, and ignite his or her imagination, our skilled teachers are there to provide support every step of the way.
Socio-Emotional: Successful healthy and interpersonal relationships are built on a solid socio-emotional base. Our early learners program demonstrates the importance of positive role models, forming bonds, and expressing emotions in a constructive manner.
Physical: Toddlers are at a stage where they are constantly on the move and learn best by doing. As their bodies grow at a rapid rate, they are now climbing up stairs, running confidently, and imitating others’ motions.
Child-Friendly Classroom: Apple Tree makes it simple for your toddler to easily access any materials they need throughout their day under supervision. Low shelving units house toys and supplies in open, color-coded boxes that are labeled with pictures and words, making your little one feel the independence they need during this time.
Growing Up Fit: With a boundless amount of energy, physical activity is an integral part of your toddler’s life. Our early learning program teaches toddlers to value fitness and health. We practice agility and mobility in a way that’s fun enough to take home and try with the whole family!
Love of Literacy: Reading aloud to children is not only a family tradition, but it has been proven to build a solid vocabulary, inspire creativity, and improve the ability to effectively communication. Our nurturing teachers make sure to include story time into each part of their day.
Potty Training: Toddlers proceed at their own individual pace when it comes to potty training, but we believe that practice both at home and school help to make the transition smoother as a whole.
Q&A Time: Some of children’s’ favorite question words at this age include “What?” “Why?” and “How?” They’re curious little guys! The good news is, we are prepared to help your child expand his or her mind by building a solid knowledge base and language skills through various exercises.
Speaking Spanish: Since toddler’s minds are like sponges, it makes sense to start learning a second language at an early age. Spanish is the second most common language in the United States—and the world—and continues to increase every day. Our learning center engages kids in vocabulary lessons, interactive activities, and storytelling sessions in Spanish.
