PRE – TODDLER ROOM
The Pre-Toddler Room is an active place where children aged from approx 12 months to 2 years engage in new experiences, based on their age, stage of development and interests, as they further develop their motor, sensory and social skills. This is also a time where we are able to encourage children’s self-help skills such as washing their hands or feeding themselves.
This 2 to 3 year age is an important time for language acquisition and development and for children to learn different ways of communicating and build relationships. This is promoted through all activities including individual and group time, quiet time, sensory play and messy play. Singing, dancing, drawing and painting are favourite activities of this age group and are a daily part of the child-initiated program. Children are encouraged to learn self-help skills and to take care of their own belongings. Those involved with toilet training will be allowed the time and patience to achieve this very important life lesson.
