Toddlers are the Biggest Brain Builders!
More than Just Toddler Daycare
Foundations School recognizes the importance of a strong infant and toddler program going far beyond babysitting. Toddlers have the most brain activity of any age, and they deserve more than just having their basic needs met. We balance individualized care with an interactive, explorative learning environment providing our children with nurturing, consistent, and loving care. Come and visit today to see the difference we can make for your child. Because we maintain such low teacher to child ratios in all of our classrooms teachers have more time for each student. This promotes deeper learning as each child learns to trust their teachers, joyfully explore the classroom environment, make discoveries, care for others and begin to see themselves as competent learners.
Interest Based Toddler Curriculum
Similiar to the Pre-School curriculum, Foundations uses Creative Curriculum as a basis for it’s infant and toddler activities and assessments, helping children develop a broad range of abilities by giving them opportunities in social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language development. The curriculum is personalized for the children, based upon the interests they express in their classroom and includes introductory STEM-based elements.
Curriculum planning at this age level is based on:
- understanding of developmentally appropriate objectives;
- sensitivity to children’s personal experiences and interests;
- knowing that children learn through first-hand observation, play, and direct experience; and
- careful observation of all their communication-both verbal and non-verbal and their interaction with their environment, other children and teachers.
Daily progress of curriculum achievements are found in the daily Discovery Reports. These reports are emailed to parents daily with photos and comments, so parents can closely follow their child’s learning experience and communicate with teachers about their learning.
