Children's Academy at Loch Haven


Your Toddler’s Day…

Toddlers have a natural curiosity and energy that makes them ready for sensory and motor exploration. Sensory activities encourage children to use critical thinking and stimulate the use of their senses: see, touch, smell, hear, and taste. Toddlers learn creative skills through art exploration. They practice gripping, pushing, pulling, throwing, climbing and walking. Teachers model speech by reading books and singing songs to enhance language development. Bible stories and activities encourage verbal and moral development and listening practice. Our toddler rooms support this unique independent stage with materials that are at the child’s level. Chairs are low so children can learn to come and go without assistance. Our teachers understand the need for acceptance and praise. We encourage opportunities to develop self-help skills such as hand washing, feeding themselves and drinking from a cup. Teachers assist in achieving developmental milestones.
