Our toddler classrooms are active, happy places where children can learn, explore, sing, and dance. Our early education program for toddlers was designed to encourage each child’s growing need for independence and to foster the development of their self-esteem in a safe, supportive manner.
Each morning you and your toddler will receive a warm and loving welcome from our teachers. During this time, you will have an opportunity to connect with your toddler’s teacher and help create a smooth transition from home to school.
Your toddler will engage in meaningful, hands-on activities and exploration projects that encourage thinking skills and enhance motor development.
Learning good eating habits is one of the many skills your toddler will learn as they enjoy meals and snacks with their teachers and friends.
Story time is a joyous event that combines some of your toddler’s favorite things: snuggles, interesting pictures, fascinating sounds, and story time sets the foundation for later independent reading.
Jumping, running, and climbing will be one of the highlights of your toddler’s day as they enjoy our state-of-the-art play scape.
Your toddler will enjoy one midday opportunity to rest and take a nap on their very own cot. Non-nappers are encouraged to participate in quiet-time activities on their cot.
Teachers use this time to connect, bond, and build language and cognitive skills with your toddler. Your toddler’s teacher will partner with you to create a supportive learning environment to assist both you and your toddler as they begin toilet training.
Your toddler will enjoy daily opportunities to sing songs, play with musical instruments, and participate in movement activities.
Toddlers are natural explorers. Your toddler’s teacher will prepare multi sensory experiences in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics for your child to investigate. Learn More
Toddlers also need the nurturing and encouragement of an understanding adult, and our New Horizon Academy teachers understand and celebrate a toddler’s sense of curiosity and engage in active learning with them throughout the day.
Our toddler lesson plans are designed around the latest early brain research and include developmentally appropriate and engaging activities to support development in all early learning domains for toddlers. Learning domains include:
Our classrooms are designed to encourage a toddler’s need for independent exploration and to encourage learning at each stage of toddler development. Our carefully designed toddler classrooms offer the following four activity zones:
This is the area where your toddler will store personal belongings and participate in the many routines that are integral to a successful day. Here, your toddler will eat meals, wash hands, brush teeth, learn to use the bathroom, and grow in their ability to dress themselves for outside play.
Your toddler will investigate and express himself in our Creative Zone. This zone offers opportunities for science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) exploration with materials, like paints, watercolors, play dough, glue, and construction paper, along with many things to measure, sort, pour, sift, stir, and count.
Toddlers need to move. Jumping, hopping, climbing, crawling, and dancing engage your child’s brain and builds connections that form the basis for many life-long skills. In our Active and Busy Zone, your toddler will use equipment like riding toys, blocks, and climbing structures, along with music and instructions to encourage singing and rhythmic movement.
Even the busiest toddlers need a comfortable place to take a break from a busy day, so we have created a Calm and Cozy Zone. Your toddler will have a special place to snuggle and cuddle using quiet materials, like puzzles, books, and manipulative toys.
“We couldn’t be happier with our daughter’s experience at this center. Our two-year-old loves all of the teachers and staff and is excited to go to “school” every day. We are impressed daily with what our daughter learns and love hearing her talk about her day, count in Spanish, or sing her favorite new song.”
