The Toddler Program
The toddler program at Bethel University Child Development Center (CDC) is licensed to serve 13 toddlers each day.
Our program is focused on giving toddlers the personal attention they need to grow along with creating a social environment where toddlers learn from group activities.
Toddlers are taught and cared for by pre-kindergarten licensed teachers and college students who are preparing to become professional early childhood educators. This creates an opportunity for our toddlers to be involved in many innovative and creative learning experiences, and to be guided by individuals who are knowledgeable in child growth and development.
We use a
learning center approach to curriculum where experiences are tailored to meet the
needs of your child as well as the entire group.
The curriculum helps our children work to improve the following developmental areas: social, emotional, language, literacy, approaches to learning, creativity, arts, cognitive, physical, and motor skills. These skills are developed daily through various activities such as:
- Creative Art
- Music and Movement
- Literature and Reading
- Active Writing
- And more…
