Our Daycare’s Jr. and Sr. Toddler Curriculum

Junior Toddlers – Children 18 to 24 Months Old

Senior Toddlers – Children 2 to 3 Years Old

Toddlers are in between being an infant and Pre-Kindergarten. This very unique period in child development has been characterized as a transitional time not unlike adolescence. Two year olds are thrusted into a newfound autonomy, with all kinds of energy, impulses and emotions bursting at the seams! The challenge at this age is to channel and learn to control these characteristics while promoting self-esteem. The Junior and Senior Programs of our toddler daycare are specifically designed to help toddlers gain confidence and control over their emotions, explore their environment and gain language/communication skills.

Nurturing Emotional Resilience

Social and emotional goals include helping the child identify and manage his newfound emotions. We introduce routines and encourage them to understand the concept of property and “mine”. The beginning of learning social codes and behaviour rules are also introduced.

Engaging Minds Through Cognitive Tasks

Cognitive activities include emergent mathematics concepts such as sorting or grouping objects, the difference between large/small and the notion of quantity. In our toddler rooms, children are introduced to their first puzzles (6-8 pieces) and begin to grasp the concepts associated with time (soon, before and after). Language Development activities include a rich variety of stories, songs, vocabulary words and hard-cover books.

Promoting Physical Development and Coordination

Gross and fine motor development activities are extremely important at this age. Throwing balls, jumping and riding a tricycle are just some of the activities that take place daily, outdoors and in our gym. Toddlers also experience yoga with our specialist in order to help them develop body perception, awareness and relaxation, as well as a sense of internal balance and well-being.

The addition of our Sensory Exploration Center to our toddler daycare program caters explicitly to their intrinsic need to interact with their surroundings through tactile experiences. This includes immersive activities like water and sand play, along with pellet stations.
