Please note, that as each child is unique, this is a general guideline of ages. Speak to our experienced staff if you have a question as to which class will be best for your child.
Look who's walking! Movement is the key ingredient at this stage as the children discover their mobility. Many more instruments are added to our repertoire such as gathering & lollipop drums, bells, tambourines, and a wide assortment of wooden instruments. Props such as balls, bubbles, scarves, crates, beanbags, soft blocks and canopies develop fine & gross motor skills and extend the child's movement vocabulary. Although we continue bouncing rhymes and chants "songtime" is introduced as children begin to sing along to their favorite songs. As the year progresses rhythmic sounds, movement games and the use of specially chosen instruments help toddlers to walk, play and sing successfully. Although your child may turn 2 in the course of the year, the curriculum grows with your child to accommodate their needs going into the next developmental stage.
