Toddlers Program


Fostering children's development of trust, independence, and self-discipline.

Toddler Program

Our toddler program is committed to fostering children's independence, trust, and self-discipline by providing a caring and enriching environment that encourages growth and development in these important areas:

  1. Promoting Self-Help Skills: Actively encouraging toddlers to engage in age-appropriate tasks, such as putting on their shoes, cleaning up after playtime, and feeding themselves. By mastering these self-help skills, children gain a sense of accomplishment and independence.

  2. Encouraging Decision-Making: Offering opportunities for children to make choices throughout the day, from selecting activities to choosing preferred toys. This empowers them to make decisions and builds confidence in their abilities.

  3. Supporting Healthy Boundaries: Our caregivers set clear and consistent boundaries, helping children understand appropriate behavior and self-regulation. We teach them how to express their emotions in a positive manner, promoting self-discipline.

  4. Positive Reinforcement: Using positive reinforcement to acknowledge and celebrate children's efforts and achievements. This positive feedback helps boost their self-esteem and encourages them to take initiative and trust their capabilities.

  5. Building Trusting Relationships: Our caregivers build strong and nurturing relationships with each child, providing a secure and loving environment. This foundation of trust allows children to feel safe and confident in exploring the world around them.

  6. Teaching Conflict Resolution: Guiding children in resolving conflicts with their peers in a respectful manner,  helps to promote effective communication and problem-solving skills and develop self-discipline in managing emotions during social interactions.

  7. Cultivating a Sense of Responsibility: Through age-appropriate responsibilities, such as taking care of classroom materials or helping with simple chores, we instill a sense of responsibility and accountability in the children.

  8. Gradual Transitions: We facilitate gradual transitions, such as separating from parents during drop-off, allowing children to adapt at their own pace and feel secure in their interactions with others.

  9. Encouraging Independence through Play: We offer a variety of play-based activities that stimulate creativity, problem-solving, and imagination. Play is a vital tool for developing independence and self-discipline in a natural and enjoyable way.

  10. Modeling Positive Behavior: Our caregivers model positive behaviors, such as patience, empathy, and self-discipline. Children learn by observation, and these examples help them internalize essential social and emotional skills.

By focusing on these aspects and tailoring our approach to the individual needs of each child, we create a nurturing and empowering environment that fosters independence, trust, and self-discipline. Our goal is to support the holistic development of every child, preparing them for a confident and successful journey in life.
