Toddlers

One-Year-Old`s are always on the move, excited and exploring the world around them! Kids 'R' Kids understands the curiosity and readiness of toddlers and creates a challenging and kid-paced day to fulfill these needs.

 

Our Kids 'R' Kids Toddler Program grows along with your child, building on previous knowledge and providing new challenges.

  

One-Year-Old Curriculum includes:

  • hands-on projects designed to stimulate the toddler mind
  • a structured learning plan designed to meet your child's developmental needs
  • problem-solving challenges and puzzles
  • a fun, safe play environment for personal discovery and adventure
  • a rich educational environment filled with science, math, language, drama, music, art and more
  • daily reports for you on the progress of your child including updates on naps, diaper changes and meals
  • close attention to each and every toddler to maximize personal growth
  • lots of hugs and giggles

 

The One-Year-Old Program

Our program works to strengthen all aspects of your growing toddler's development:

  • building language - Through continued use of sign language skills and our teachers creating a highly verbal environment, your toddler learns to communicate with caregivers and other children through their ever-increasing verbal skills, which help to ensure that their individual needs are met.
  • stories and songs - Exciting stories and an array of silly, fun songs help your toddler's imagination continue to grow while they learn those important skills needed for the next developmental level.
  • creativity - Our facilities are designed with imagination in mind. As toddlers develop, they will continue to explore their abilities in music, art, and drama with the help of our developmentally-appropriate learning centers in each classroom. Our state-of-the-art facilities encourage creativity and imagination.
  • gross motor skills - With your toddler on the move, a busy body is a healthy body! Whether they are crawling, walking, reaching, or tossing, we help children learn all about their bodies and celebrate their accomplishments both great and small.
  • fine motor skills - Fine motor skills are a necessary part of a toddler`s education in order to ensure successful writing skills in the later years. We work on using the small muscles in the hands using play dough, clay, sensory table activities and having the children practice picking up small objects under the supervision of their instructors.
  • social interaction - When children enter into the world of toddlerhood, they become aware of the world around them. We believe that healthy, happy children understand the importance of friendship and harmony with their teachers and peers. Kids 'R' Kids is designed to maximize friendly interactions between the children and their teachers, no matter the nationality, religious belief, or cultural differences.


Two-Year-Old`s continue to move through their world using their senses. They are beginning to move from Parallel Play to Cooperative Play. Instead of simply playing beside a friend, they now engage each other and play toward a mutual goal or outcome.

 

Two-Year-Old Curriculum Includes

  • hands-on projects that continue to be the best practice for early learning
  • self-help skills to begin working as a team with parents to potty train and teach children to dress themselves 
  • verbal skills are a main focus for this age group which helps children to communicate more effectively
  • a fun, safe play environment for personal discovery and adventure
  • a rich educational environment filled with science, math, language, drama, music, art and more
  • daily reports for you on the progress of your child including updates on naps, diaper changes and meals
  • close attention to each and every two-year-old to maximize personal growth
  • lots of hugs and giggles

The Two-Year-Old Program

A combination of teacher-directed and self-directed activities in both small and large groups help this age group expand their world in an age-appropriate atmosphere. Math, science, language, drama, music, art and more fill your child`s day here at Kids `R` Kids.

  • Potty Training - Our staff work as partners with parents when children begin to show signs of being ready to start going to the potty. This requires commitment and dedication from home and school to help children succeed.
  • Language Skills - Teachers help develop a useful vocabulary for children in a comfortable atmosphere. By using words to describe feelings and emotions, children begin to express themselves as individuals in our classrooms.
  • Gross and Fine Motor Skills - Through the use of stories, songs, art and outdoor play times, children develop their ability to manipulate the world around them.
  • Creativity - Children are encouraged to express themselves through art using a wide variety of materials in teacher-planned and self-directed art activities.
  • Imagination - Children know no boundaries when it comes to their imaginations. We provide opportunities each and every day for children to create their masterpieces. Children are encouraged to express themselves through the use of sensory play, dramatic play, block play, art and more.


We know that toddlers lead a very active lifestyle, and that is why our staff is prepared for the occasional boo-boo. We have developed a special place in our schools where your child can rest and receive the tender loving care they deserve. Our staff is highly qualified in First Aid as well as in “making it all better.”

A hug, a nod, an understanding smile, the comfort and safety of being with people who care—that's the Kids 'R' Kids difference.
