Movement is the key ingredient at this stage 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. the curriculum grows with your child to accommodate their needs going into the next developmental stage..
