Imaginative Play

 

This is an exciting time when amazing strides are made in your child’s development. Language and other skills are at the ready, and with the right support, can flourish without limit. At this age, curiosity and a desire to try everything takes hold. Toddlers have boundless energy and are in constant motion. They want to play and then play some more. Our classroom and curriculum are designed to make the most of this energy rather than trying to hamper it. Learning takes place through the child’s spontaneous activities, guided by our professional faculty, so that through their play, art and music experiences, they build an understanding of language, math and other skills. They also learn what it is to be a friend and classmate through the direction of their teachers. Many milestones are achieved during this time, including toilet training. Our teachers will work closely with you as together we assist your child in attaining these important life skills.
