Toddlers are stepping out of baby booties and into walking shoes. They are learning to explore the sights, sounds, and textures of a whole new world. Toddlers also need to feel safe and secure so they can develop a love of learning that will be an asset during their school years and beyond. Relationships with caring adults give toddlers the confidence to experiment as they grow, step by step, into people who are ready to meet the challenges of life.
Mill Creek Early Childhood Program...
Responds to your child’s individual temperament, needs, and cues, while building a strong relationship and open communication with your family.
Acknowledges your child for his accomplishments and helps him to feel more confident and in control of his actions.
Recognizes that your child may not be able to communicate all of her needs through language; promptly respond to their cries or other signs of distress.
Reads to your child, individually on our lap or in groups of two or three. we also sing, do finger-plays, and act out simple stories.
Engages your child in everyday routines such as eating, toileting, and dressing so they can learn new skills and better control their own behavior. We support their attempts to take care of themselves and provide items (such as a box of tissues placed on a low shelf where children can reach them) that are easy for them to use.
