Talking, talking, and talking! Older toddlers’ language is developing rapidly!
At this age, they are refining cognitive, language, social and emotional development. They are also practicing fine motor skills by cutting, painting, stringing beads and coloring. You will even find children exploring different art mediums with clay, paint, glitter and glue. (They love glue!)
Daily group times involving finger-plays, learning the alphabet, listening to stories and singing lots of songs are their introduction to a classroom model that they’ll recognize as they begin elementary school.
Field trips also grow their world at this stage – riding a big bus to enjoy a picnic at a nearby park, visiting local sights and feeling bigger in the world.
