Toddlers – 18-30 Month Olds
Due to popular demand, Celebration Center is pleased to offer a Toddler program! This program cares for and teaches children in the age range of 18-30 months. Our loving, kind, and qualified teachers are offered at a lower ratio, so your child will be assured of having plenty of one-on-one interaction for the best possible experience. Our teachers in this program are required to complete a teaching program specific to working with toddlers, so you can rest assured that your toddler is in good hands.
Celebration Center’s educational philosophy is to promote learning through play and exploration which is especially paramount for children in this stage of their development. Your toddler will be taught through songs, rhymes, and story-telling. The room is set up similarly to those in the older children’s room with the same stations but scaled and designed appropriately for toddlers.
The play area is complete with:
- A kitchen set up for pretend play
- A sensory table for exploring textures and developing fine motor skills
- A reading center for familiarizing themselves with books – how to handle them and looking through the pictures
- A circle time area for group learning
- A block area for further fine motor development, creativity, and fun
The Toddler program provides a foundation for building socialization and interaction skills through our teachers assistance and direction. We hope to lovingly encourage your toddler to find joy in being with and socializing with their teachers and peers. We will also provide assistance with potty training.
Drop off time starts at 6:30 AM and toddlers are taken to their classes as they arrive. There will be a mixture of free play and planned morning activities until circle time starts at 9:15 AM. Later in the morning, there will be outside play as long as the weather permits. We have a playground with a section specifically dedicated to be age-appropriate for our toddlers. Diapers are checked and changed when needed. Following lunch, toddlers will be able to wind down for a nap.
*A diapering fee will be charged separately from your toddler’s tuition
