Toddler programme is designed to meet the needs of the children at this important sensory motor period of development. This period of rapid change must provide physical, emotional, social, cognitive, and neurological challenges with love and nurturing. The adult/child ratio in our Infant Unit is 1:3. The Infant Unit stays open most days of the year.
Sense of Trust:
An infant’s trust is developed through adults responding appropriately to an infants' need to be loved, respected, and accepted. We consider an infant as a whole person who is affected by the quality of holding and loving as well as the quality of physical care.
Our classrooms are bright, warm, and “homely”. They are designed to allow children to navigate and explore some of their earliest milestones, including sitting, walking, eating independently and early language skills. The classroom invites the children to develop independence, confidence, and a sense of community through activities that promote motor skills, mobility, order and self-expression.
MS. GLORY OKON
This is an integral part of the Infant program and is the most powerful absorbent stage. A teacher’s role is to constantly introduce language through the use of words. Infants and toddlers are spoken to in the formal language with which they will communicate in the future. We do not use baby talk, but talk regular with a wide vocabulary. We share good literature in the form of rhymes, songs, poetry, and stories, which we believe greatly increases the child's love of language. All of this learning we believe should be kept natural and enjoyable.
