One Year Olds -16-24 months Ratio 1:5
The one year old program is a fun and cheerful place for your child to spend their day. Our program supports your child’s growth by providing an interactive setting, where language skills expand quickly. A warm and safe environment and positive interactions foster a one year olds sense of trust and self esteem. The classroom space and materials are organized to support the children’s need to explore, discover and to be independent. Your child will be encouraged to participate in daily activities to develop self help skills and feel good about themselves. Activities provide repeated opportunities with sensory experiences and help strengthen and develop large and small muscles, hand eye coordination and promote thinking and communication skills. Our teachers promote positive behaviors, set limits and are always available to support the children’s conflicting need for independence and comfort. The one year old program includes curriculum areas of art, cooking, dramatic play, manipulative activities, language and music & movement. The planned activities are designed to foster a positive self concept as they develop their self help skills and gain a feeling of independence and control over their environment. When your child is ready to move into the Toddler program they will do so with a sense of excitement about learning with a solid foundation for a successful experience.
