Our toddler program has been developed and improved over 40 years. As toddlers enjoy their newfound mobility and explore the world around them, our proprietary L.E.A.P. (Learning Experience Academic Program) Curriculum introduces them to American Sign Language, manners and etiquette and physical fitness programs.
Together these programs, along with enrichment programs that are offered* at no additional charge, provide a well-rounded early education—one that’s developed to meet national standards and proven to get children on the path to a bright future.
Our approach to early education for toddlers (1 to 2 years old)
By this stage, a child’s leg muscles are ready—once they stand up and take those first steps, they’re off and running, eager to explore. Our toddler education program offers them the opportunity to do so in safety (with our caregivers alert and ready to walk around the room with the children) and also allows them to develop cognitive skills as they build language, graduate to one to two-word sentences, learn to hold a crayon and eat finger foods.
This is also when our toddlers acquire self-helping skills, such as communicating their needs or picking up after themselves.
What our curriculum for toddlers includes
A typical day for TLE® toddlers is filled with, stimulating, age-appropriate activities and materials. Our early childhood development toddler curriculum focuses on eye-hand coordination, motor development and problem solving. Toddlers will experience:
- Interactive play, music, and dance.
- Outdoor time encourages social engagement in plenty of fresh air and sunshine.
- Age-appropriate fitness toys and toddler exercises to keep toddlers on the move.
- Self-help skills such as washing hands, picking up after themselves and sharing are taught to toddlers in order to foster sociality assimilation.
The Bubbles and Friends app
We offer an easy-to-use smartphone app that hosts all things TLE, and keeps parents connected to what’s happening throughout their child’s day. This includes access to chat with their center, check tuition balances, and review child’s activities and photo gallery. Plus, access to all the Bubbles and Friends episodes, in addition to fun and educational games, to soar children’s imagination and creativity!
