Toddlers are stepping out--out of baby booties and into walking shoes, out of infancy and into childhood. They are learning to explore the sights, sounds, and textures of a whole new world.
We now know that children begin learning from the moment they are born, and the environment we create lays the foundation for their development through life. When a child first steps out of the home and into a child care setting, parents may feel excitement and sadness at the same time. By finding a caring place for your toddler, you help them grow to feel good about themselves and to thrive.
At this stage, all areas of development--thinking, feeling, moving, and getting along with others--are intertwined. Newly mobile toddlers want to take off in every direction at once and experience every sensation the world has to offer. But toddlers also need to feel safe and secure so they can develop a love of learning that will be an asset during school years and beyond. Relationships with caring adults give toddlers the confidence to experiment as they grow, step by step, into people who are ready to meet the challenges of life. At Creative Learning Center we do all this and more.
