“Having a two-year-old is like having a blender that you don’t have a top for.”
Older toddlers insist on trying tasks by themselves and they want control over their environment. They also have a growing interest in books, art and toys. Our 2 ½ year-old room addresses this stage of development by offering older toddlers more opportunities for independence. A stool at the sink or a coat hook within reach, allows them to try and do things themselves. Each day your child will have the opportunity to pick their own activities and may play by themselves or with others. Your child’s schedule will include frequent potty breaks that encourage them to use the toilet if they are showing interest in potty training.

Because older toddlers develop a strong sense of self-identity, our teachers make room for their participation when telling, singing, or reciting stories and songs. They also begin to make comparisons between themselves and other kids. That is why it is important for them to interact with other toddlers of diverse culture, ethnicity and abilities. Your child’s teacher will do more matching and sorting games to help them identify similarities and differences in people and things around them

Maybe your toddler is a menace. Maybe your toddler is a sweetheart. Being able to learn about your child’s day can set your mind at ease. Kangarootime is our parent communication app where you can see what teachers are charting about your child in real time like what they ate, how long they napped and selfies! When you come to pick up your child you will also receive a report of all the day’s activities and notes about what happened. This tool also allows you to message the center in seconds when you have a question or concern.
