All Day Toddler Care

All Day Toddler Care

 

The toddler program at the Y follows a relationship-based practice. This approach is based on the knowledge that infants and toddlers need on-going, enduring bonds with important adults in order for them to feel safe and secure, learn to trust others, develop a sense of self-worth, develop communication skills, and be motivated to learn. 

The structured curriculum that we follow includes ways for children to learn many important things, such as: conveying ideas, expressing emotion, using their senses, as well as exploring processes and outcomes.
