The Toddler community is a child-size environment, so that the “I want to do it myself” need of the child may be fulfilled. This community allows the child to live each day to the fullest and not just be “entertained” by the actions of an adult. The Toddler program has been developed to enable the child to work independently, and to explore complex materials, as they grow in orderliness and build new skills.
Toddlers want to cook, clean, set tables, wash and change clothes, feed themselves and learn the names of everything they can. To meet their strong desire to control everything around them, separate areas have been set up within the environment for dish washing, clothes washing, food preparation, personal hygiene, language, play and sensorial exploration.
