16 months – 30 months
Welcome to our Toddler Child Care Program! Once children begin to walk, it changes everything. Toddlers are so full of energy and want to learn about everything and everyone around them. That is why at Noah’s Ark your toddler’s day is packed with opportunities to explore, create, and imagine! The Toddlers are very busy throughout the day! They are always learning new things of interest to them. To help support their growth and development through exploration, we provide the children with educational and fun activities as we rotate through our learning centers. Our daily schedule allows toddlers to move to different areas and activities such as circle time, gym time, outside play, free play, music time, daily lesson, story time, and group activities such as singing and exercising.
At circle time and lesson, your toddler will get a chance to learn basic colors, shapes, letters, numbers and listen to stories. During free play, your child will develop friendships through guided sharing and listening activities. Outside play, group activities and gym time will allow your child to develop their eye-hand coordination and large motor skills. Our caring and loving staff will communicate with you through a daily account of your toddler’s day which includes diapering, feeding, sleeping and daily activities.
Toddlers are gaining their independence and learning self-help skills. Potty training and learning to dress themselves are big steps to our young learners. At this age, they are insistent on doing things themselves, and we encourage them to try on their own even if it takes a little longer. Our center cook prepares a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack each day. We would love to have you come tour our toddler room!
