Our Toddler A Classroom is designed for children from 16 months old to approximately 24 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.
