Committed to the whole child, we facilitate development of motor skills in a quiet, comfortable way as they develop control of their body. We also assist the child as he begins to be more socially aware, helping them function effectively with other children and adults.

  

  

The child learns everyday skills that are repeated over and over again as time progresses. The most significant development for toddlers is movement. They begin by imitating adults’ movements such as walking, sitting, washing, wiping, etc. They are able to carry out tasks by themselves with their own strengths and limitations. As the child learns these skills, he develops a sense of independence, self-sufficiency, personal responsibility, order, coordination, and concentration.

  

At this age, there is very much sensory exploration, developed through working with sizes, colors, sounds, shapes, etc. Along with the senses, children’s language abilities also enter a sensitive period (a period of heightened awareness) at this age. They learn new words and phrases to express different situations, becoming more and more able to communicate their thoughts and feelings to others. This growth is largely due to their natural, quick development, but the environment also enriches their language development, helping them begin to have language awareness.
