Older Toddlers - Philosophy


Children in the older toddler program are engaged in play outside and inside in order to consider problems, solutions, and dilemmas.  Our curriculum is based on the belief that through play the young child will discover the world and meet their strengths and challenges.  The educators in the older toddler program sculpt the day to include time outside every day, routines for circle, stories, and cooking, as well as time to connect with their primary educator as they experience daily care.  Their focus is still on the adults in their lives and we build strong relationships between children and their educators by affording them time, space, and invitations to investigate the natural world.
