At Springmont, the Toddler Program is the first step in a life-long love of learning. Toddler classrooms serve children ages 18 months to three years. At this age, a child is naturally curious and eager to learn. Our highly experienced and trained faculty and staff are ready to guide your child on a journey of discovery using a full complement of specially designed learning materials in a warm, home-like, safe and beautiful environment. Classroom activities foster coordination, control of movement, concentration and independence. The young child is naturally drawn to the activities of everyday life. As children happily repeat these activities, refining their coordination and experiencing success, they become more independent in their ability and desire to care for themselves and their environment. Toddlers independently set the table for snack, mix muffin batter, wash dishes, wipe up their spills and sponge off tables. Children choose fine motor activities, acquire toileting independence, paint and enjoy music together. Language development is also a high priority in the Toddler class. Maximum class size is 15 children with one Teacher and one Assistant.
