Toddlers (18 months – 24 months)

At First Steps, our Toddlers ages 18 months to 24 months will learn basic classroom routines and rules and will continue to develop social skills. We will provide opportunities for parallel and small group play to encourage sharing, using kind words, and expressing feelings appropriately in a Christian environment.

Research-based and child-focused HighScope Curriculum is integrated into each of our classrooms which includes individualized goals for each child, playtime with age-appropriate toys, stories, music and movement, art, sign language, small and gross motor activities, and exploring the outdoors. We include daily Bible stories and songs that share the love of Jesus with them throughout their day.

Each of our classrooms encourages parents to be an active part of their child’s care and learning. We welcome parents to observe and interact with their child in the classroom.
