Toddlers:  The Age of Independence


Toddlers (18 months to 2 1/2 years old) are an exploratory bunch, that’s for sure! And we gear our toddler room and curriculum to encourage this drive and growing sense of independence. 


Curiosity and wonder are prevalent, but safety and security are paramount as well. We foster a caring and safe environment for little eyes and ears (as well as fingers and toes) to soak up and interact with the world around them. 


We encourage children to use words and facial expressions to communicate their feelings, boundaries, and desires. Our rules are simple: We cannot hurt ourselves, others, or property. Our goal is to allow your child to express him/herself in unique, socially acceptable ways.


We also make sure your child feels safe, inspired, and right at home. Our project-based curriculum mixes play, nature, and hands-on, investigative learning. Creativity is encouraged, so when your child is ready for preschool, he or she has the tools to meet the new challenge head on. 


Choosing your Peoria childcare facility is an important decision, and we look to make it as easy as possible. We would be happy to schedule a tour and answer any questions you may have. Contact us for details.
