Purple Dinos

The Older Toddler program places an emphasis on organization, choice and cooperation. Your child is now developing cause and effect relationships, sequencing to make sense and increasing communication with expressive and receptive language. Pretend play, extensive story times and sensory explorations that include a listening center, science area and music are all implemented to enhance your child’s early development. Indoor and outdoor activities are also incorporated into the daily routine in order to help build positive self-esteem as well as small and large muscle strength and coordination.
