As infants mature and become toddlers, our staff continues to stimulate their senses and encourage them to explore their world. Your child will learn such skills as pushing and pulling objects, turning and bending, sorting objects by color and size, exploring the concept of big and little, and building an early vocabulary. Music and art become an important part of the day.

At this stage, your toddler will start to experience a somewhat more structured classroom routine. He or she will start to learn valuable skills such as taking direction from adults other than parents, how to co-exist with other children in a learning environment, and how to share.

SJCC staff understands the challenges that toddlers face in a social learning setting, and have experience in helping them adjust to the give and take of the classroom and playground environments.
