The toddler curriculum (walking to toilet trained): allows your one or two-year-old to
spend busy, fun-filled days engaged in activities that promote learning and
discovery and the French language. Whether it's filling containers at the water
table, stacking and tumbling blocks, or playing with appropriate toys and
puzzles, your child will learn as he or she plays. Your child can investigate
brightly colored objects and shapes, play dress up, chase after a ball, or
build fantastic structures with blocks or in the sand box. Or, your child may
choose to cuddle up in a comfy chair with a book or do a quiet puzzle.
An Enriching Environment
The toddler curriculum focuses on constantly listening to and talking with children. I hold them, rock them, and encourage their social, emotional and language development. I surround them with age-appropriate toys and tools to encourage exploration and discovery and enhance their overall development. I provide every opportunity possible for your child to develop his or her own interests, at his or her own pace. Your child will spend each day in a variety of activities, focusing on themes followed through the year.
