LCSH Toddlers (Our Little Puddle Jumpers)
Investigating the world around you is what it is all about when you are a toddler! Your toddler’s day will be filled with a plethora of activities, including music, movement, fitness, toys, cooking and interaction with equipment that encourage exploration and discovery. Soothing music and gentle backrubs during naptime provide just the right repose for sleeping.
Toddlers are striving for independence and have reached a child’s first real milestone. They have grown into the mobile stage and are walking and exploring their fascinating environment. Their curiosity is endless. At LCSH, a toddler’s natural inquisitiveness is encouraged and nurtured. Our staff strives to ensure a safe, secure, enjoyable, loving and learning environment.
Since toddlers learn through play and exploration, we give them the space, age appropriate materials, and stimulation they need to help quench their thirst for learning and discovery. The Toddler teachers prepare developmentally appropriate curriculum plans, incorporating goals and objectives that follow the Massachusetts Early Learning Guidelines. The plans are reviewed by the Program Director and an overview is posted for the parents in each child’s classroom.
A typical day in the Little Corner SchoolHouse toddler center abounds with stimulating, age appropriate activities and materials. Our own Little Learners™ curriculum is written for our Toddler staff by the Curriculum Department at our Corporate Headquarters and is distributed to each center monthly. Nightly reports are ready for parents at pick up time. They reflect, in detail, everything that goes on during the child’s day at Little Corner SchoolHouse. These reports, known as Toddler Times, are invaluable to busy parents.
