Toddler Program 18 months to 36 months

Here’s What We Provide

 

Program Highlights:

Highly Trained Staff

  • Our toddler staff receives additional training in curriculum implementation and social-emotional education so that we can provide toddlers with strategies to connect with and manage their emotions.

  • Staff also work with outside resources such as UCP Mobile, GRECS, and Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education to gain valuable in-class support

Daily Program

Individualized Programs

  • We know that students develop at different rates. That’s why we design our program to meet students where they are.  Our teachers are trained in developmental milestones and assess each student twice a year to establish their current development level, as well as develop strategies to ensure they meet the next milestones.

  • Students transition as they are ready. Many transitions happen for students in the toddler ages including:

  1. Transitioning to open-face cups

  2. Learning to use feeding utensils independently

  3. Moving from the high-chair to a straight back chair

  4. Saying goodbye to the pacifier

  5. Potty Training

Collaborative Partnerships with Parents

  • Our teachers develop collaborative relationships with parents in which parents provide important feedback about home life so that teachers can further support students through development and transitions

 

Curriculum

  • Toddlers are full of fun and activity, and our daily schedule proves it!  Frogstreet Curriculum invites students to learn through play, focusing on learning domains with a strong emphasis on having language-rich environments. We talk, sing, dance, and read all day!

  • Routines and Transitions- One of the greatest ways to help children see success in the classrooms is by having routines, schedules, and transitions that students can learn and anticipate.  Knowing “what’s next” help students prepare for the transition and helps our classrooms run smoothly.

  • Large Group and Small Group learning- We believe in building community within our classroom through the introduction of morning meetings.  We also believe that small group instruction with students on similar levels provides targeted support for students development.

  • Potty Training- We believe in capitalizing on students’ early curiosity.  That’s why we ask for students in toddler rooms to wear pull ups, and all students are taken to the restroom to gain familiarity and reduce the fear.  When students show curiosity in using the restroom, they will have the opportunity to sit on the potty each time.  Parents are encouraged to extend this practice to keep consistency and make potty training successful.
