It’s a new world for toddlers, they begin to walk, to talk and begin to develop friendships with each other. Toddlers learn through sensory experiences that increases their cognitive, language, motor and social skills. They practice the importance of sharing and cooperating through group play and turn ideas into words and phrases to better express themselves. When children use their words and thoughts to interact with others at this stage, they start to develop friendships and gain confidence. It is important for children to express themselves creatively; we encourage your child to develop their unique skills and interests through play. We sing, read and talk to our toddlers, also we offer a variety of activities geared to peak your child’s interest.
