Your Toddler’s Day
Today’s Kids toddler-specific curriculum enables your child to grow in confidence and learn to walk tall in their new world.
Toddlers are naturally curious and want to explore the world around them. We have designed our classrooms and equipment to support safe exploration so your child has room to discover, build motor skills and improve coordination. Activities focus on experimenting with space to develop balance, hand/eye coordination, participation in creative movements to music and more.
Toddlers need an environment that is interesting to explore, safe and filled with caring teachers who respond to their emotional and intellecutual needs. Our program offers children a variety of fun, stimulating activites such as matching and sorting, exploring colors, counting and categorizing objects.
A foundation for reading success begins as early as the first few months of life. Introducing toddlers to books and language nourishes early literacy development. Toddlers focus on first words and phrases, vocabulary development, following simple directions and identifying and naming familiar items.
I will develop friendships, confidence and self-esteem.
It is a whole new world when babies take to their feet. They walk, they talk, and they begin to develop relationships with each other. Your toddler has so many things he or she wants to see and do and we’ll be there to guide your child every step of the way.
Toddlers learn through sensory experiences that enhance their cognitive, language, motor and social skills. They turn ideas into words and phrases to better express themselves, and practice the value of sharing and coorperating through group play. Children at this stage start to develop friendships and gain confidence as they use their words and thoughts to interact with others. It is important for children to express themselves creatively and, through Today’s Kids Childcare and Educational Program, we encourage all children to develop their unique skills and interest.
