Explorers (Toddlers 18 months - 3 years)
In our toddler program, we encourage our youngest learners’ natural curiosity as we construct the basic building blocks of a STEM education. By asking the right questions and allowing our students to explore the world of the classroom using all of their senses, we expand our Explorers’ scientific learning and lead them towards discovery. Learning naturally takes place during play with water, shadows, sand and other manipulatives, where open-ended questions allow our students to explore the possibilities of their environment. “Tell me what you are working on now.” “What do you notice about how it’s moving?” and “What else have you seen other kids try?”
The teacher serves two main purposes: assisting children in developing new skills and facilitating interplay between children and the environment. The goal of our classroom is to give toddlers an introduction to the basic STEM principles as they develop social intelligence and life skills through team-building and brain-building activities, art and music.
