If your child falls in the age range of twelve months to the age of 3, they will be placed in our exciting Toddler Classrooms. Your toddler will enjoy playing on their own safe playground complete with fun riding toys. Check out our weekly or monthly activity planner for our toddler program focusing on skills in the development areas of language, motor development, music, as well as, art.
Our toddler curriculum will focus on teaching language skills with your toddler. At this stage talking to your child is very important. Even more important is listening to your child. This means making eye contact with the child and responding to them.
When you do so, you are showing the toddler that his or her words are important and you are creating an incentive to keep your child learning more about language. When your toddler is treated this way, with regards to language, studies have shown that the child will be six months ahead of their peers.
Reading will increase your child’s language skills. Read to your child throughout the day versus only bedtime. If you read to your child only at bedtime, he or she will associate reading with going to sleep.
Motor development is another important part of a toddler’s life. To help get your child’s muscles ready for important tasks such as writing, fine motor skills are needed. A simple way to improve a toddler’s motor skills includes stringing beads.
Sensory tubs are a fantastic idea as well. A great example of a sensory tub includes a tub filled with water and toys. Another sensory tub is a tub filled with dry hard beans. Place a large eating spoon inside of the tub. Make sure you have different sized cups for your child to fill up with the beans.
Music is important as it helps build your child’s vocabulary. Music also helps with your child’s coordination and rhythm. Listening to music can calm your child down as well as lift their spirits. Music is also brain food for your child as it increases connections in their brain.
Art helps stimulate your child’s imagination. Art is also a great way to build your child’s fine motor skills and receive sensory stimulation. Playing on the playground is a fantastic way for your child to socialize, run off energy and use large motor skills.
Start your child off right with Children’s Academy of Northlake.
