    Communication is taken to the next level at The Learning Tree. Parents receive constant updates and pictures regarding their child's day. "Kids Reports is really wonderful. It's nice to be able to take a look during the day and see what my daughter has been up to. Whether she napped or ate all her bottles. etc. I also really love getting pictures while I'm at work!" -Brooke Mullender, Parent.

Our Toddler Program is designed to meet the individual needs of children from 1 to 2-1/2 years.

Toddler ProgramDaily information charts are completed on each toddler. These charts will give you information about how your child has eaten and slept, as well as his/her progress in toileting. Classroom lesson plans and the daily menu are posted in each room.

Toilet Training
As in all areas of development, The Learning Tree's philosophy of individualized care also applies to toilet training. When a toddler begins to show an interest, and has the verbal skills necessary to express their toileting needs, we work in collaboration with the child and their parents on toilet training. Our bathrooms are equipped with child-sized toilets and sinks for easier access for toddlers.

Toddler Curriculum

Toddler teachers provide a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and materials that are selected to emphasize concrete hands on learning and to achieve the following Toddler curriculum goals:

  • To foster positive identity, and a sense of well-being
  • To allow toddlers to feed themselves and encourage their development of self-help skills when ready
  • To develop social skills by encouraging language development and redirecting toddlers to help guide them toward controlling their own behavior
  • To encourage toddlers to think, reason, question and experiment
  • To provide an appropriately challenging, safe environment for toddlers to explore and manipulate
  • To provide daily opportunities for exploratory activity indoors and outdoors
  • To encourage toddlers' attempts at language
  • To enhance toddlers' physical development and skills
  • To encourage and demonstrate sound health, safety and nutritional practices
  • Diaper changing, toilet training, eating and dressing are viewed as vital learning experiences
  • To encourage creative expression, representation and appreciation for the arts

Toddlers are expected to explore and manipulate art materials, not create a product
