Toddlerhood is a time when children are taking initiative, formulating and elaborating their ideas, and developing a sense of autonomy. We support toddlers at this wonderful time by first and foremost encouraging an enhanced sense of self-confidence and esteem.
Apple Tree Learning Centers have two Toddler programs, a Younger Toddler Program for children 12 months to 24 months and an Older Toddler Program for children 24 months to 36 months.
Toddlers are exposed to colors, shapes, numbers, letters, art, sensory activities, song and dance, books, puzzles, and many other learning possibilities. The development of language and self-help skills are encouraged and promoted through creative and complementary opportunities. Toilet learning is a significant step for our older toddlers toward self-awareness, self-identity and self-esteem. Therefore, we work with both child and parent(s) to create a consistent and positive experience for the child during this important process. The toddler rooms are safe and inviting places that offer a diversity of age specific learning tools and social opportunities for children.
