Early Childhood Development Program (ECDP)

Toddler Level

• Must be 18 months old by 9/6/16

Toddler children are at an age when they establish secure attachments with their caregivers more quickly and are now eager to experience their world. They react to what they experience through their senses and physical activity. ECDP teachers provide intentional experiences for toddlers through a variety of indoor and outdoor experiences.

Learning materials that match the children's growing abilities and interests are provided and the children start to explore objects and begin to use them purposefully. While playing with toys, imitating and pretending, exploring sand and water, creating with art and going outdoors, toddlers learn to communicate and socialize with peers and adults, to think mathematically and to discover like scientists.

Toddlers start to enjoy special programming such as Toddler Tango and gym class. Toddlers are placed into classrooms according to their chronological age. Children do not need to be toilet trained, and when appropriate toilet training will be incorporated into one of the goals for your child.
