In the infant and toddler programs, children begin to learn to form attachments and assert independence. They begin to practice expressing feelings in appropriate ways and communicate their needs. They start to develop trusting relationships with adults as well as friendships with peers. They can try out different roles through imitation and pretend play.
In the curriculum, teachers focus on language development and an appreciation of words and books. Opportunities abound for learning to crawl then walk, climb up and down, ride and run. The children are exposed to music, creative art, and other sensory experiences. The curriculum emphasizes a variety of learning areas and activities - solving problems, simple puzzles, putting on and taking off shoes, putting away their special blanket in their cubby, and transitioning to using the bathroom are just a few.
