We have (2) Toddler rooms in our center. Toddlers are beginning to settle into a routine while still developing their own habits, personal styles and personalities are unfolding. They are exploring their movement and environment and our hope is to continue to provide the same loving care as would be given in his/her own home. We want to embrace our natural setting and begin teaching environmentally safe practices and simple structure throughout the day with our young toddlers.
These rooms are separated by furniture and are open and airy with lots of invigorating areas for them to explore throughout the day. Like our infant rooms, our toddler rooms are also heated with radiant floors. A first of its kind in childcare and the ONLY center in IL to provide this environment. Since we spend 90% of our time indoors, our goal is to provide cleaner air and a more comfortable and relaxing classroom so our toddlers stay warm and cozy all winter long!
Community Playthings line is what we feel to be the highest quality, safest and LEED certified furniture and we've selected it for all of our classrooms. We selected this manufacturer for many reasons, most importantly, we feel they have the highest quality, safest design and are the only childcare furniture that are LEED certified. With our goal of the highest safety standards and bringing a more natural environment into our classrooms, this was an easy decision. We encourage parents to take a moment to see what makes them truly the safest and best childcare equipment on the market today. Our supplies are also organic and Eco friendly wherever possibly. This includes details such as providing organic cot blankets for the children in our care.
Our toddlers enjoy a family style, lunch and snacks throughout the day that will be catered by Gourmet Gorilla. All food is organic or all natural, non GMO and includes fresh fruits, vegetables, milk and grass fed beef and poultry. Please make sure your child has breakfast prior to drop off. Our snack time is roughly between 9-9:30am.
We know how important it is for parents to receive updates and stay connected throughout the day. We utilize Kaymbu, where parents can be involved with their child's daily, excitement and behavior, along with milestones on a regular basis. Your child's real time updates, including photos, will be communicated immediately upon your child's teacher entering the information. Our updates often include developmental milestones, along with the day to day activities of your toddler. We offer parent teacher conferences and our teachers are always willing to schedule a personal phone call to discuss your child's educational experiences.
Our curriculum is play based, yet comprehensive and inspires even the youngest learners to engage, have fun and develop lasting relationships. Toddlers gain so much experience in a language rich routine and meaningful experiences on a daily and ongoing basis. Compassionate and caring teachers plan activities for toddlers that will support language, early math skills, social experiences physical growth and sensory skills during routines and experiences. We focus on observation and assessments to help your toddler reach his/her highest level.
Our toddlers are able to explore various centers, enjoy various manipulative toys, lots of art, fine motor and block play, learn proper hand washing for cleanliness, learn to speak kindly and with manners, enjoy routine circle time for music and stories, outdoor play on a beautiful playground, make friends, and, of course, feeling lots of love from their teachers!
