Giant Steps Children’ s Centre has 5 classrooms that have toddlers. The toddler ratio is 1 staff member to 6 children.
Our toddler teachers get to know these little people and their families on an intimate basis. Our program includes nurturing care as well as education. Our educators develop connections and relationships and respond to the children’s cues and interests. A typical toddler day may include, music, art, indoor and outdoor play, sign language, science, dance, pre-literacy, and word development through speaking, reading, singing, and listening. Toddlers strive for independence; our teachers create a program that supports each child’s individuality. Some of the most important learning outcomes in our toddler program are language development, socialization, self-help skills and development of fine motor and eye/hand coordination.
