Ones Learn Every Day

Learn Every Day: Infant, Toddler and Twos is specifically designed for the expanding world of a child who is mobile. During this time, toddlers learn to explore their world, draw conclusions based on those explorations and build new problem solving skills. It is during this critical period of development that language, social emotional skills, and mobility increase rapidly. The child centered activities in this program are presented in the following areas: art, brain builders, fine and gross motor skills, language and communication, early literacy, music and movement, outdoor explorations, sensory explorations, and social emotional development. For older toddlers, activities are arranged in broad exploration areas such as colors, shapes, animals, taking care of the world, and numbers. Additional emphasis is placed on setting the stage for toddlers and twos as they explore, discover, and learn.
