The Older Toddlers are very active and exploring how their world is put together. They do this through play with blocks, cars, trucks, animals, kitchens, cooking, dress-up, science areas, musical instruments, arts and books. They are learning to share, take turns, listen to others, use good manners, control their own behavior, wash their own hands and use the bathroom by themselves.
The Older Toddler children have circle time daily where they sing songs, do finger plays, do name recognition, learn to say the alphabet, count to 20, recognize and identify basic shapes and colors. They also match objects and learn about seasons and weather and enjoy story time.
Because toddlers are very active, we go outside daily (weather permitting) for playtime as well as having times of active play and dance time inside.
