The Toddler Program is open to children who are 18 to 24 months old. This transitional stage prepares the children to begin developmentally appropriate academic education and character formation. Children begin potty training in this class.
How do toddlers learn at Little Flower?
Toddlers learn by experiencing the environment through their senses.
Toddlers are guided to explore their surroundings and use the learning materials available. They also repeat the names of the materials and equipment.
Adults play a vital socialization role with toddlers and bond with them using a warm and positive manner to help them develop a sense of trust in the world and a sense of competence. These positive interactions are critical to the formation of the child’s self-esteem as well as his/her cognitive and physical development. Important self-help skills are being acquired during these early years, such as meals and dressing. The most appropriate teaching technique for this age group is that of providing ample opportunities for the children to use self-initiated repetition to practice newly acquired skills and to experience feelings of autonomy and success.
Little Flower is fully licensed for the care of toddlers, and the presence of God is shown to our students through the love and dedication of the caretakers.
