Teacher to Student Ratio
12 months-24 months
At this age, children are making new discoveries as fast as they come and curiosity is heightened. Crawling, walking, and eventually running are levels they accomplish in what seems like a blink of an eye. Children learn best if they are in a stimulating environment that supports their curiosity. While providing safety and security, we ensure our toddlers are given the encouragement and guidance to make sense of their surroundings and their new found independence. We operate with a 1:6 teacher-student ratio.
The class features large open floor space with colorful play mats and rugs that make for perfect circle time activities. Each toddler receives a personal crib or sleeping mat that is safely disinfected at the end of each day. Our teachers sanitize toys and the diapering station after each use to ensure cleanliness and the reduction of germs. We limit class size to only 12 toddlers with two teachers, always maintaining our Bright Scholars teacher-student ratio. Breakfast, lunch, and snack are provided daily along with lots of love, learning, and laughing!
Music, singing songs, listening to stories, outdoor play, and learning simplicities envelop much of the day. Teachers encourage communication and language development through the use of sign language and exposing toddlers daily to new vocabulary picture cards accompanied with teacher animations. Our teachers are dedicated in helping each child develop new skills through a trusting and loving relationship.
A Beka, a nationally recognized curricular program, is introduced to our toddlers. Teachers use these colorful resources to engage children in alphabet awareness, vocabulary, numbers, shapes and colors. We also utilize A Beka’s Christian materials to highlight children’s bible stories that are just right for our little toddlers to begin the process of character development which is further strengthened when they advance to the Gifted Toddlers (age 2) program. The class is filled with age appropriate toys and books that are explored independently by students during center time. Parental daily reports are provided to update families with meal and nap times, diapering, and all activities accomplished each day.
A parental daily report is given to update each family on meal and nap times, toilet training and all activities accomplished each day.
