In their quest for independence, toddlers are developing many new skills – walking, talking, and discovering what they can do. Their sense of discovery needs to be encouraged while developing language skills through investigative, meaningful learning experiences.
Our toddler teachers at the Palm Beach Christian Academy are qualified professionals. Toddler Rooms are probably the most energetic of all classrooms. In a loving and nurturing Christ-centered environment our, teachers keep a close watch as they help each child grow and explore.
The Toddler Classroom’s emphasis is on a more unified classroom schedule. Toddler teachers know, for toddlers to feel comfortable, happy, safe, and secure they require consistency on a day-to-day basis. With that in mind, our Toddler Staff sets age appropriate classroom schedules, with the learning curriculum starting each morning at 9:00AM. The toddler will follow set routines and will quickly acclimate to the daily schedule.
The Creative Curriculum for Infants & Toddlers and High Reach Learning serves as the framework for planning and implementing a high-quality program. Based on a monthly theme, the PBCA Toddler Staff plans age appropriate activities that allow hands on experiences for toddlers. Some of the activities used in the classroom include: story time, books, finger plays, art activities, music and songs. Through both the Creative Curriculum and High Reach Learning, toddlers will learn about body awareness, self-concept, language skills, and reasoning skills, along with number, shape and color recognitions and the world around them.
