We have developed an excellent, proven program to help give parents and toddlers a great way to interact while working on developmental skills at the same time. The reasons for starting a program such as ours are vast and include the following:
Their thinking skills are across the board,which makes it hard for them to anticipate what’s coming next. Therefore, their attention span will be very limited.The intellectual goals for our program are to get them to focus on the task at hand with minimal distractions,such as listening, to the instructor, thinking about what comes next in activities, and following directions.
They are very active, but don’t have much control over their movements. The physical goal for our program are to get them to perform basic exercises and activities with control such as stepping and jumping without falling, kicking while bending their knees, and punching while pulling their other hand back.
Language development has a big influence on their social development. They will imitate others, but will quickly fight for personal space when they feel too crowded. The social goals for our program are to help them interact positively by sharing as well as showing respect to the other people in the class.
Their feelings are very strong, but they are still not at the stage to recognize why.Therefore, they will show a wide range of strong emotions that are not quickly controllable. The emotional goals for our program are to help them to have patience during activities despite how challenging they are.

Class sizes are intentionally small so we have the focus needed to work with this very special age group.
We look forward to meeting with you soon!
