12 Months - 30 Months
Toddlers crave discovery and learning. We let toddlers discover new things and find their own path, with a bit of help along the way.
Our Toddler classrooms are places where children can explore the world around them as they become more mobile. Each day your child gets to experience a variety of activities inside and outside the classroom such as painting, story time and dancing. Our teachers focus a lot on physical activity because toddlers are learning to walk, climb and jump and this helps them explore. Your Toddler’s schedule is structured to include plenty of snacks and lots of attention!
- Indoor and outdoor play
- Painting, story time, and dancing
- Lots of focus on physical activity
Toddlers show strong attachment to the adults in their lives and a fascination with their peers. They practice communication by babbling and they understand and can respond to a growing number of words.
Part of our curriculum at Busy Little Hands is teaching toddlers basic sign language to help them communicate basic needs like water, hungry, please and thank you. We also want toddlers to develop verbal skills.
Our teachers model good speech and constantly teach new and familiar words to your child and encourage them to make sounds. Our teachers also recognize when a toddler is able to comfort themselves and they try to reinforce that behavior with encouragement and praise.
- Basic sign language
- Reinforce the ability to comfort self
Maybe your toddler made a mess. Maybe your toddler played well with others. Being able to learn about your child’s day can set your mind at ease. Kangarootime is our parent communication app where you can see what teachers are charting about your child in real-time like what they ate, how long they napped and selfies! When you come to pick up your child you will also receive a report of all the day’s activities and notes about what happened. This tool also allows you to message the center in seconds when you have a question or concern.
“I was very nervous about enrolling my son in daycare last November. He was almost 2 and had only had babysitters until that point. I visited Busy Little Hands and instantly loved the environment. The owner, Jessica, personally gave me a tour and went over all of the details that I needed for my son. They also worked with me to get my son enrolled, on a schedule that worked for me (I had recently dealt with some unforeseen circumstances that significantly affected my financial situation).
During this pandemic with COVID-19, Rocky Mountain Preschool has been so flexible with us parents. They have offered a lower enrollment rate for those parents that need to hold a spot for their children but can’t bring them into daycare. They even sent a gift to my son with a note saying how much they missed him!”
