Toddler with Wooden Toys

Toddlers

Toddlers are aware of themselves and how others perceive them. Many exciting developmental milestones occur in our toddler classrooms. They are reading picture books, drawing, painting, climbing, jumping, and exploring everything around them. We believe that a toddler’s environment should offer age-related appropriate activities and the opportunity to interact and play alone or in small groups. By allowing our children to learn in small groups, it gives them the opportunity to get more one-on-one attention. Our professional trained teachers will give you the peace of mind knowing that your child is in a loving and nurturing atmosphere.

During the toddler years, children make steady gains in all areas of development. They are struggling with their feelings of independence versus dependence. They want to do everything by themselves, yet they also realize that they need love and attention to accomplish these goals.

Otter Learning offers a program to meet the busy life-style of your toddler. We offer a variety of techniques to help your child move toward independence, problem solving, understanding abstract concepts, and sharing with other children. We focus on appropriate developmental outcomes that are based on your child’s individual needs. Reading, sorting, counting, and identifying shapes are a primary objective for improving your child’s language skills and are all covered in-depth.
