Toddlers begin by acclimating slowly to their new environment, developing a sense of security and comfort in their classroom with their new teachers and “friends”. The Kindle School in the Heights, Inc.’s teachers are experienced with our gentle separation process, therefore, allowing children to form a bond with their teachers and friends, and develop a sense of security in their new environment. In doing so, preschool becomes a familiar and exciting place where our toddlers feel safe and supported.
In scaffolding children’s experiences, our teachers create a joyful foundation, while promoting confidence and learning. By creating a safe, secure, consistent, and welcoming environment, we foster curiosity and confidence within the children as they explore the world around them. Our toddler curriculum places a strong importance on cultivating self-identity through nurturing guidance and exploration. Each day is enriched with hands-on, discovery-based experiences. Interwoven into their play are opportunities to experience new social and emotional situations, as well as develop language skills, physical milestones, and explore new concepts.
Learning opportunities and experiences throughout the day are supported by nurturing, knowledgeable early childhood educators, who provide a sense of security through a predictable schedule and smooth transitions.
