THE TODDLER PROGRAM IS A 12 MONTH PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN AGED BETWEEN 18 AND 30 MONTHS
WE ENSURE A TEACHER- CHILD RATIO OF 1:5
The Brason Academy Toddler Program incorporates activities that develop the toddler's gross and fine motor skills. The child will enter a prepared learning environment: a classroom filled with interactive stations. They will enter an uninterrupted work cycle of one hour, where they are free to explore the classroom by themselves, developing skills like hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and concentration. Gross motor skills are promoted in the playground during outdoor play. After this, the children nap in their own personal cots to recharge for the rest of the day.
Self help and self reliance
Though the children are provided with full support from the teachers where it is needed, the Toddler Program focuses on developing a sense of independence in the children by helping them to acquire skills such as dressing and grooming , hygiene, toilet training and self feeding.
Toddlers are encouraged to develop their language and vocabulary through a number of ways. Some of these include matching nomenclature cards to items, involving them in story time and role-play. The children learn songs and listen to music together through the Music and Movement aspect of the program, developing a sense of community and togetherness.
Throughout their time in the Toddler Program, the children develop close and nurturing relationships with their teachers and peers in an environment that promotes trust and friendship. The teachers also ensure that they have a meaningful and trusting relationship with every child's parents.
Food and Nutrition The Toddlers are provided with healthy and nutritious snacks in the morning and afternoon . Lunch is provided according to the Canada Food Guide.
