Toddler Care

Toddler Care:

As Toddlers make huge developmental strides from first steps to potty-training, First Step supports their progress with a stimulating learning environment. With low child to student ratios in our classrooms and our high reach curriculum, First Step provides hands-on lesson plans and activities that encourage toddlers’ exploration and discovery of the world.

Keeping in mind that routine promotes the consistency toddlers need; days are filled with a balance of play, music, movement and plenty of outdoor climbing, running and jumping as well as down time for quiet learning and rest.
Our Toddler Program Highlights Include:

  • Learning stations enhance toddler learning with imaginary and dramatic play, blocks, puzzles, arts and crafts, and lots and lots of books!
  • First Step instills confidence in toddlers by encouraging them to practice self-help skills such as hand washing, putting on their coats, etc.
  • Understanding that each toddler potty trains at his/her own pace, First Step works together with parents to encourage progress with patience and positive reinforcement.
  • Teachers emphasize social growth through circle time with stories and songs incorporated into each day to encourage language skills.
  • Gross motor skills are keys to toddler growth and are emphasized with both indoor and outdoor activities.
  • Teachers encourage curiosity and learning as they guide toddlers to discover the answers to “Why?” and “Where?”

Toddler care programs are offered at all First Step locations in Hunterdon County, NJ
