In the Toddler community of 18 to 36-month-olds, basic motor coordination, independence and language development are fostered and individual personality is respected. Rather than a classroom, it is a nurturing social community where very young children experience contact with other children and learn to participate in a cooperative group. Practical skills such as toileting, dressing, and cooking develop fine and gross motor skills, independence, self-esteem, a sense of order, and a joy of learning. Sensorial activities entice exploration and allow for classification of sensory impressions. All of the activities are enhanced through language as their discoveries and experiences need names.
