Middle Toddlers (18 months to 2 years)
In this classroom, the children have potty training incorporated into the daily schedule. As needed, the teachers will work with families regarding when to start the potty training process and come up with a plan of action that works for both the children and their families as well as the teachers in the classroom. There is a changing table area for those in diapers or pull ups.
Our focus on developmental goals for this classroom are physical health and motor development where children begin to show interest in using the toilet, washing hands with assistance and begin participating in self-care routines such as getting their lunch box, using utensils with little spilling, putting on their jacket with assistance and cleaning up after themselves, and social and emotional development where children begin to develop friendships and preferences. As the children get ready to move on to our Preschool classrooms they begin using writing and drawing tools purposefully, begin to recognize their name, and manage classroom rules and routine with occasional reminders.
