The Toddler program is specially designed to allow the young child to feel safe and comfortable. The room is arranged as a safe environment for exploration, and to encourage independence, and self help skills.
The teachers of this program understand the toddlers need for physical movement and the constant practicing of skills. A predictable schedule helps the child be comfortable with the changes throughout the day, while still allowing for flexibility that is so important for the individual child’s needs. Transitions are handled without long periods and the child’s short attention span is considered at all times.
In this program the child is given the foundation of a positive Jewish life by using an interactive approach. Songs, stories, finger play, and the celebration of the holidays are joyous
A caring and positive atmosphere is provided for the child. It is a warm and nurturing setting for the child to learn and grow. The teacher stresses the connection between home and school and understands the important role of the parent. The teacher places special emphasis on guiding the two year old to develop a good self image while building acceptable methods of social skills and interaction. Activities are planned that emphasis the process rather than the product, fostering a sense of pride and accomplishment.
