Toddler & Begindergaten Summary
Quality care for toddlers requires a developmental care
curriculum that helps children develop both their minds and bodies in a safe and healthy environment. Our goal is to
help toddlers feel good about themselves, learn social skills, and develop thinking skills. Not only do we meet the
toddler's basic needs for health and safety, we strive to meet all the needs of a growing child for love, guidance,
and learning through developmental care.
The Toddler Curriculum covers 4 basic areas of development:
Listening and Talking - Building an understanding and enjoyment of new words.
Physical Development - Using small and large muscles, thus working on eye-hand co-ordination and large
Creative Thinking - Developing independently through art projects, play with blocks, dramatic play,
Learning from the World Around Them - Early experiences indoors and outdoors enabling toddlers to use
their senses (how they hear, see, smell, taste, and feel) to explore different shapes, sizes, and colors of things, thus setting
up a basis for these ideas which will gradually come through out preschool years.
Shared experiences help children learn and grow.
The objectives of our curriculum for three year olds are: to give the child the opportunity to make new friends, to be with
children his/her own age, and to foster self expression and creativity.
Here at Roulhac's Preschool, we focus on your child's skill level and strive
to enhance physical, social, motor, language, cognitive, and self-help skills. These skills build confidence, self esteem,
trust, fun learning, creativity, and intellectual expression.
This curriculum lays the ground work for our Junior Kindergarten program for four
year olds. Fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination are our top priority.
Within our nine month school year readiness program, we will incorporate
- Self and Family
- Recognition of Colors and Shapes
- Community Helpers
- Beginning Sound Phonics
- Writing and Recognition of Child's Name
