Toddlerhood is an exciting stage in your child’s development. They are full of energy as they struggle to “do it by myself”. It is a time when language, social, physical, and cognitive skills begin to flourish. Toddlers are learning during every moment of their day, using all of their senses to explore. They need lots of physical activity and sensory play. Our toddlers love music and story time. We engage our toddlers in conversations, we listen, we share our feelings, we jump and dance, we play outside, we experience new materials, and we offer a hug whenever it is needed.
