Itty Bitty Babies

Crawlers & Walkers
10 months to 20 months*
Babies learn quickly at this age and are ready for a more active and mobile classroom.
Activities are implemented to build skills in coordination, balance and body awareness in a safe and supportive environment indoor and outdoors. Infants develop the fine muscles in their hands before they develop the ability to speech. All of our infant teachers are qualified to teach baby sign language – a way for children to communicate before they can speak.
It’s so fun, easy, and effective to sign with a baby!
We love to read!
Toddlers – Caterpillars
Beginning at 18 months*
Through imagination and interactive play, these children use initiative, curiosity and persistence to learn about the world. Toddlers love to move, and are aware of themselves and their surroundings. They are busy using all their senses and learning to explore in a whole new way! Teachers facilitate their learning to help them get more out of each and every experience. A toddlers natural appreciation of song and rhythm will be developed with finger plays, flannel boards and their participation in the Spring Musical. Our Toddlers will be introduced to our Move & Groove Special to develop gross motor skills.
Toddlers – Butterflies
Need activities and settings that are interesting to the Toddler, helps develop the child’s potential. Their desire to explore new objects and people is increasing. At this age, children are learning to work independently and take control over themselves and others. In addition to these physical accomplishments, toddlers are developing in other ways. We provide opportunities for your Toddler to explore, ask questions, use his or her imagination. Social and Emotional training is beginning as Toddlers are transitioning from parallel play to Associative Play. Art is a favorite activity for our Toddlers while we are developing fine motor skills.
It is especially important to promote growth and learning in all developmental areas for toddlers.
We love singing and dancing at our Spring concert!
