Playful Puppies


Teaching toddlers is a challenge for they love to test the world around them-the physical environment as well as the adults caring for them.  The teachers in the Puppies room are fully present and connected with the children when they feel dependent, yet allow the children to move away and explore on their own when they are ready to be independent.

By providing appropriate learning experiences for toddlers that they will find truly enjoyable, our goal is, at the end of the activity, to hear the children say wholeheartedly "again".  Our goal is to provide learning in all six domains:  physical, social-emotional, motor, language, cognitive and spiritual.
