Our Toddler Program

A place for growing curious, happy and confident toddlers

Our space is built for active and inquisitive toddlers with environments made up of well-planned learning centers that allow for physical activity, child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching. There are reading nooks, sensory tables, great books, pretend play areas, baskets filled with dress-up and exploratory materials, musical instruments, and outdoor places to explore.

Learning experiences are planned to promote each toddler’s growing independence, to enhance social skills, and to build the confidence needed to reach their individual potential and prepare for preschool and beyond.

Learning at Home

Puppetry with Twos and Preschoolers

You Will Need:

Purchased or homemade puppets

Directions:

Talk and play with your child using the puppets. Make up skits, ask open-ended questions like, "Why do you think that happened?...How do you think she's feeling?...Why do you think she's sad?" Consider having a special puppet that you bring out at particular times like clean-up time or bedtime to assist with the routine. "Look, Fluffy is helping clean-up. Can you help Fluffy?"

Tip:

Puppets may be able to help a child begin to talk about feelings such as shyness, anger, joy, fear, etc. For example, you could have the puppet talk to your child saying something like, "Sometimes when I am sad, I feel like talking to someone. Do you want to talk to me?" However, don't use the puppet as a substitute for real interaction with your child, just as an opener to get talking started.
