Our toddler friends enjoy exploring a variety of sensory materials using their hands and tools.
The toddlers are using magnifying glasses to observe insects to sketch.
Our toddlers spend a lot of time taking care of the babies in our classroom: feeding, hugging, changing and loving!
To extend the children’s interest in insects, they made salt dough to use to sculpt their own insects.
The toddlers enjoy and explore in a variety of ways at the park: Gross motor, language, problem solving, experimenting, wondering, social skills, dramatic play and much more.
