Young Toddler Classroom
When your child joins For Kids’ Sake’s Young Toddler Program, you will be amazed by what he/she learns. Our teachers have created a loving and nurturing environment where each child is encouraged to sing, dance, play music, do finger plays, and create beautiful artwork. They will help children to become confident young learners who are curious and excited about the world around them. Through modeling and positive reinforcement, each child learns how to care about and share with others. It is not uncommon to see our teachers in the middle of a dance party or leading a musical parade around the room.
Each day, our teachers will complete for you a “chat sheet.” This form is summary of your child’s day including meals, naps, and diaper changes.
