Who they are...

During their time in the toddler class, children develop some of their first relationships outside of home making this a very critical stage in their development. This age also finds the child starting to assert their desire for independence and expressing their own personality. Children are physically active and intellectually curious. The LMS environment and curriculum is designed to provide the warmth, welcome and stimulation that enables this growth.

  • Toddler History/Geography

    Toddlers make sense of the world by experiencing and mastering routines. As your child transitions from an unconscious absorbent mind to a conscious absorbent mind they learn familiar words associated with time, and they begin to understand the meaning of these terms. They also become part of a group that is outside of their family and begin to develop empathy as they realize that their actions have an impact on others and that there are classrooms, students and teachers outside of their own.
