Toddlerhood is a time of transition from total dependence to the first steps of independence. At this age, children navigate many important milestones – from early socialization to managing temper tantrums to self-care and toilet training. They look to parents for guidance.
The Hanna Perkins School Toddler Group offers a small 90-minute class, which meets twice a week, for parents and toddlers. It is an opportunity for toddlers to be introduced to a group setting with the support of the parent. It is also a place where parents and toddlers can receive support from teachers, other parents, and child development specialists. The class includes free play, snack, a brief group time and playground time. Parent and child participate in all activities together.
Ages range from 15 months to 3 years, helping younger children to “reach up” and providing the older toddlers an opportunity to recognize and value their growing abilities.
In addition to a focus on self care, the curriculum introduces children to the natural world through growing plants, observations of the weather, and attention to small animals. Art activities, dramatic play, puzzles, books, building toys, and tools are regularly available.
