Toddler 1 and Toddler 2 Programs

Toddlers 1 Program Philosophy

Welcome to the Apple Blossoms Child Center Toddler 1 Program. While in this room the children, through structured play, learn to use their senses, increase and use their vocabulary, recognize and label shapes and colors, and practice using and controlling their body.

Our qualified staff recognizes your child’s struggle to organize and control their environment. They work hard to ensure your child is given numerous opportunities to explore their world through “trial and error” and “cause and effect” learning. At this age, your toddler is learning to identify him/herself within his/her environment and to discover who they are in that environment. In this setting, your toddler needs flexibility and nurturing. Through a variety of activities including movement, art, cooking, dramatic play, and building and outside play, your child will create a sense of his/herself. He or she will be confident and will feel safe to experience challenges in their development.

An important aspect of your toddler’s development is toilet training. We will always follow your lead and be understanding of the training process.

We cannot guide your child’s development without your help and support. You, as the parent, are your child’s first and most important teacher. You know your child best and we will do what we can to reassure you that your child is receiving all that they need. The teacher/parent relationship must be positively supported through mutual respect and trust. We need to be able to work together to be able to give your child security, consistence, and an environment for learning on the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive levels. We hope to facilitate your child towards autonomy. Our primary goal is to make Apple Blossoms Child Center a safe and happy environment for both you and your child.

Toddler 2 Program

Toddler 2 Program Philosophy

Welcome the Apple Blossom Child Center Toddler 2 Program. While in this room your child will learn all about interacting with their peers, following simple directions and exploration of their newfound toddlerhood! Through flexibly structured activity, your child will be given room to grow and opportunities to experience art, literature, motor development, music, movement and language.

The teachers in the Toddler 2 classroom understand that these little learners require patience, love and guidance. They will keep them actively engaged and interested in their classroom environments. Teachers will encourage language development and positive interactions with their peers. Redirection and positive reinforcement will be at the forefront of teaching these important social emotional skills. Outside, sensory and gross motor activities will make up a large component of this program as these young children learn and develop.

Communication between families and teachers is of the utmost importance, and through daily conversation as well as written communication you will be kept heavily involved in your toddler’s day.
