Our Toddler Program
Our toddler program is focused on giving children ways to learn actively, build cultural awareness, and engage in their community.
Nurturing and relationship building is also a key
part of our program. Through a Christ-centered perspective, we offer toddlers
learning experiences that enhance their social and emotional development.
Facilities and Staff
Our toddlers have a space that is uniquely set up to fit their learning needs. There is open space for them to move and explore in the classroom, plus they have their own area of the playground with outdoor activities suited to their age.
Toddlers receive care and instruction from pre-kindergarten licensed teachers as well as college students who are preparing to become professional early childhood educators. This creates an opportunity for children engage in many innovative learning experiences, and learn from individuals who are knowledgeable in child growth and development.
At the King CDC we use a learning center approach to curriculum. Each day teachers design learning experiences to meet the needs of the individual child as well as the entire group. Learning centers incorporate Biblical principles as well as focus on the foundational theories of early childhood education.
Sample learning centers include: creative art, science and cooking, music and movement, large muscle activities, sensory experience, listening center, and more.
To emphasize our focus on community engagement, we also have planned experiences designed to expand the learning environment beyond the King CDC such as field trips and community speakers who come to share their talents and professions.
