Toddler Program 18 mos-30 mos

The Educara Toddler Childcare Program for ages 18 to 30 months is led by a dedicated team of loving and nurturing professional Montessori and Registered Early Childhood Education teachers. 

Early childhood is the most important phase for overall development  throughout a person’s lifetime. Choosing the right program for your  young toddler is a very important decision. 

Our classroom prepared, toddler-sized, environment is a spacious, well designed area where children are free to explore with all their senses.  Attractive, age appropriate, learning materials and toys are displayed on low shelves within easy reach for toddlers. 

They play, engage and satisfy their natural curiosity through interesting activities gently guided by their caregivers.  Self-esteem and feelings of competence develop naturally through toys and material with intrinsic self-correction ensuring success, pride and accomplishment in practical life and sensorial experiences.

Toddlers, at this age, are just beginning to express themselves verbally. Therefore, it is imperative to nurture and encourage its development. Language allows the child to articulate wants, needs, likes and dislikes. The Educara Toddler childcare program strives to  establish a child who is able to express himself confidently and clearly, resulting in better behaviour management and a happier child.  

Language development, in the program, is accomplished through various  activities such as age appropriate stories, singing, and spontaneous  conversation time.

Our rich curriculum for toddlers is especially designed to  

  • foster cognitive development, speech, and language development
  • develop and strengthen, fine and gross motor skills
  • teach practical life skills and foster independence
  • instill confidence, kindness, grace and courtesy
  • allow children to learn by doing, using all their senses to explore the world
  • help joyfully instill social skills and cooperation
