18 months - 2.5 years
In our Waddler Class we provide many opportunities for our young waddlers to express themselves in their new found power of mobility. We also furnish the children with many occasions to encourage their independence by providing them with choices in their environment. Creativity is always a part of our day through hands on activities with both fine and gross motor activities in mind. Our waddlers make use of all activities that come naturally to them. They participate in cooking, painting, singing and dancing, dressing up, science discovery, and experimenting with materials like sand and water. These play experiences help younger children develop language skills. Most important in our waddler class is that the waddlers develop a love of learning and the wonder within one's self.
