Toddler Program: Children have just stepped out of the home to explore the world as they enter the toddler environment. They need a safe and secure place so they can focus their energy on learning the world around them.
A toddler undergoes many unseen cognitive, emotional, and social developments. They need an environment that facilitates their learning. The child is endowed with the absorbent mind. They are exposed to rich language, learning to express their thoughts. The guide engages the child in book reading, storytelling, circle time, and interesting games. These lay a foundation for their language growth.
They need ample opportunities to practice and gain control of their gross motor and fine motor skills. Outdoor space provides the link to bring nature closer to them. Children enjoy the freedom of movement that caters to their needs. This builds their confidence and helps the child adapt. They are naturally curious about the world around them. They are introduced to zoology, botany, geography. Various puzzles on animals and plants lay the foundation for further learning and bring a general awareness of the surroundings. These activities develop their hand-eye coordination.
Initially, the child randomly picks up the activity due to curiosity, as the child continues to work without intervention, the child slowly develops interests. The child repeats the activity to satisfy the developmental need and innate desire to learn. This cultivates into greater interest in constructive work.
