Classroom Age Range:

Our Proddlers Classroom is designed for children from 30 months old to approximately 40-42 months old.

Classroom Components:

Group Time: Includes songs, books, flannel board stories, puppets stories, simple language and counting games, etc.

Exercise Time: Includes physical activities such as moving or exercising to music, Follow-the-Leader, animal walking, dancing, etc.

Cracker Time: Is a light, additional snack designed to meet toddlers’ need for a smaller more frequent meal. This is usually a cracker and a drink of water.

Floor Play: Is a time for classroom staff to be on the floor, playing with the children and the toys. This provides important modeling as teachers dress and feed dolls or builds block constructions.

Outside Time: When weather permits, teachers may use their assigned playground times. In the warm-weather months, painting, stories, and other activities may be added to playground activities.

The above daily schedule is our base routine. Because children’s needs vary from day to day, teachers may adjust the timing of the various components of the day, making sure that each component is offered. However, activities in bold must remain at the indicated times.

We would love for your little bug to join us. Schedule a Tour to review availability and to learn more about our Ladybug family.

Our daughter continues to get excellent care as she moves from class to class from her teachers. I am impressed how much she learns every week."
