The focus of our infant curriculum is to be age-appropriate and to stimulate learning. We recognize that rhythm and repetition is vital to children of this age to enhance their learning. We provide toys and material which are easy to manipulate and enjoyable for your child.
The infant program emphasizes a nurturing environment, introducing babies to healthy social and emotional interaction, language acquisition, body awareness, and motor control[hr]
TLC, through play and guided play we enhance small and large motor skills, cognitive skills, and social/emotion development. Our curriculum includes songs, books, stories, finger-plays and many other activities in fun and age-appropriate ways to encourage pre-literacy skills. We encourage eye-hand coordination, ability to follow directions, development of vocabulary.
In the toddler program, we build on skills learned in the infant program and provide a safe and happy environment for toddlers to become more independent. Problem solving, concept formation, cooperation and self-help skills are also introduced.[hr] [/span6] [span6]
TLC’s Two year old classes are encouraged to develop knowledge of different shapes, color matching, counting skills, memory recall, a desire to help, an awareness of similarities and differences, and an understanding of obedience and responsibility. We encourage confidence and independence in each of our children.
