Toddler Program (18 – 30 mos.) (ratio 5:1)
The objective of this program is to help children learn to feel secure in a school environment, ensuring a smooth transition from home to school. Children learn basic rules and routines, while developing social skills and enjoying a variety of learning experiences. Toddlers are introduced to Practical Life and Sensorial Activities to develop control of movement, respect of the environment, self-sufficiency and refine sensory perception. They are also introduced to beginning concepts in Language and Mathematics, using concrete materials. The Reggio Emila Project Approach is an integral part of this program, providing endless opportunities for toddlers to explore creativity and imagination through long-term projects.

Parent-teacher interviews are scheduled before the first term reporting period. Any further communication between parent and teacher and/or the Director can be made by email, appointment, or by telephone at any time throughout the school year.
