Wonderful Ones Little Explorers

18 - 24 Months

Wonderful Ones Little Explorers

We continue to follow a classroom schedule at this age. This daycare classroom is a continuation of the skills that were introduced in Movers & Shakers. Through out thematic curriculum, daily circle time, sensory exploration, music and movement, we encourage your child’s verbal, social, and educational growth. In this preschool classroom your child will start to identify family members and friends, learn their colors, imitate animal sounds, and repeat simple songs and movements. Weather permitting, we provide daily outdoor play in our playground area designed strictly for infant/toddler use that will allow your child to run, jump, and climb.

Baby Signs

Infants and toddlers have the gift of curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. At Talented Tots Daycare, we begin using Baby Signs in our infant classrooms to encourage the children to use simple hand gestures and sign language to communicate their needs, what they want, or what they are seeing in their environment. Giving the infants and toddlers in our care the basic tools to communicate even before they can talk will boost their self-esteem, and decrease frustrations between caregivers/parents and the children when using words isn’t an option.

Daily Schedule

A one year-old is learning and growing in many different ways. His/her personality is starting to come through, and they are beginning to understand and verbalize more words each day. Our daily schedule is designed to foster verbal, motor, and social skills for this age.
