Our toddler program provides a nurturing environment that supports developmental needs of independence, movement, and opportunities to engage all senses. Toddlers develop autonomy by having the choice of materials to interact with, having responsibility for themselves whenever possible and by allowing them the opportunities for:
- Self-help skills
- Daily chores
- Hygiene and toileting
- Feeding themselves
- Dressing and grooming themselves
When toddlers practice self-help skills daily such as feeding and dressing themselves, they practice their large and small motor skills, gain confidence in their ability to try new things, and build their self-esteem and pride in their independence.
