Play ~ Create ~ Connect
As your toddler's speech and language continue to develop, she will start to demonstrate increasingly complex social and play skills. Parallel play with other children will blossom into more interactive and reciprocal play as they learn how to share space with and enjoy one another. We will provide purposely simple and open-ended play materials to allow your toddler room to flex their imagination muscle! Children will often play by imitating the work of adults, be it cooking, cleaning, driving, building, or talking on the phone. As such, parents will come to understand the importance of their role as models for their child's imitation. Parents will be invited to engage in purposeful "work" during play time (e.g., simple crafts, preparing snack, tidying) which the children will be welcomed to join if they wish. Play time will be followed by a group snack, washing dishes together, and will conclude with an age appropriate circle time consisting of songs, movement, and a puppet play that celebrate nature and the current season of the year.
