    ๐Ÿ‘ถ Infant Community

    1 to 3 years old

    Toddlers are beginning to master balance, coordination and reasoning, and they want to challenge themselves to do important, meaningful work: preparing and serving food, cleaning up, helping others and more. These experiences lay the foundation for the skilled adults they will become.

     

    Some refer to this developmental period as โ€œThe Terrible Twos.โ€ We disagree; toddlers are terrific. We love everything about them โ€“ their energy, determination and curiosity. Just for them, we have created a very special place for your toddler to learn.

     

    Where so many early childhood programs are chaotic and overwhelming, parents are often surprised to see the peaceful tone of our toddler classroom.

     

    The calm atmosphere and lack of distraction helps each child to develop impulse control and concentration, planting the seeds for learning in this classroom and beyond.

    Our students grow together into a close-knit, caring community. When children work, learn and grow together, they learn much more than any of them could learn alone!

    Your child has a natural drive to be independent, which we encourage by creating an environment where everything is just the right size for her to do things on her own.

    Child-sized tools that fit their tiny hands allow them to prepare a snack and serve it to friends. A miniature broom empowers them to clean up on their own. Each child learns the skills of self-care and toilet training.

     

    Your child learns a set of concrete life skills and self-confidence โ€“ but, more importantly, develops the belief that he or she can choose to make a genuine impact on the world.

     

    Our bright and sunny toddler classroom is specially designed for your child between the ages of 2 and 3 years. It is a world scaled down to your childโ€™s size. Here, your child paints, cooks, waters the garden, sings songs with friends and plays with materials that develop fine and gross motor coordination.  

  • We surround your child with rich and stimulating conversation - in both Spanish and English - to support this once-in-a-lifetime period of rapid language development.

    Your child, trying to blow bubbles, might be encouraged with โ€œBlow! Can you make the air move just like the wind?โ€ Your childโ€™s mind effortlessly absorbs the new vocabulary, which plants the seeds for reading, writing and self-expression in the future.

    Sometime between the ages of 2 1/2 to 3 years of age, your childโ€™s language skills and self-expression will develop rapidly; they will express a growing confidence in independence and a keen interest in broader concepts and will want to know what lies ahead, outside of the Infant Community classroom.. At this point, the child is ready to move up to the Childrenโ€™s House studio, for children from 3 to 6 years old
