Toddler Program

Ages 16 months to 36 months.
The Maple Tree toddler program is designed to recognize each child's development, as the child's personality continues to emerge. Maple Tree's program is built around the child's limitless curiosity and thirst for information. With our adult to child ratio of approximately 1-to-5, teachers are able to meet individual needs of each child.

Learning Environment

In our bright and stimulating classrooms, each day is filled with thoughtfully crafted activities to develop the physical, cognitive, social, spiritual and emotional needs of the children. Through continuous observation and assessment, our highly qualified teachers are able to intentionally plan lessons that further children's developmental milestones. These experiences foster kindness, self-esteem, and friendship.

About Our Curriculum

Our primary lesson planning comes from the Early Learning Success curriculum. You may find out more by visiting Earlylearningsuccess.net. Our team of toddler teachers are experienced and creative, they draw upon supplementary activities based on the needs of the group as well as the needs of individual children. They consider Early Learning Success as a base for lesson planning and will add to and alter the curriculum as they see fit.

The children have extensive exposure to art, sensory media, music, literature, movement activities, concept reinforcement, sign language, and experiences in nature. Each day, we work on building relationships and we teach skills to promote social growth.

The teachers work with the children on skills such as dressing, feeding, and toileting. We communicate closely with parents to ensure our approach is consistent with the patterns children experience at home.

A thread of Christianity runs through our program. The children pray before they eat lunch, they sing traditional Bible songs at group time, and they enjoy weekly Bible stories. The Early Learning Success curriculum compliments our teaching of values via their Character Counts activities which reinforce characteristics such as being polite, friendly, helpful, and respectful.

What our families say

I am always excited to read the newsletter for the month and see what fun activity is planned. I always look forward to looking in my child’s file folder and finding the art projects she has created or finding photos from one of her fun days (petting zoo, pony rides, jumpy castle day, picture day, water play day, crazy hair day, pajama day or the Christmas pageant). Thank you for the wonderful care you provide for my daughter. The peace of mind I have knowing she is there is just wonderful!
