Our Toddler program provides a firm foundation for continued growth and learning as they are encouraged to engage in active learning in a supportive, language-rich environment that strengthens linguistic and listening skills, as well as sound discrimination.
Upon enrollment your child is assigned a Primary Caregiver who is responsible for and closely monitors your child’s daily activities, so that we can share their daily progress with you. These Primary Caregivers formulate monthly lesson plans that promote language development, pro-social interaction, and emerging self-help skills. Our Toddler curriculum includes colors, shapes, letters, and numbers through a variety of developmentally age-appropriate activities.
Additionally, our Toddler program embraces a HEPA (Healthy Eating & Physical Activity) philosophy. Our onsite kitchen staff prepare meals that promote healthy eating habits and our Toddler indoor gross motor room is used daily to keep our Toddlers safe, occupied and developmentally active. Weather permitting, Toddlers play on our attached outdoor toddler-specific playground that expands their physical, sensory, experiential and social skills.
Please note, due to the New Jersey Department of Children and Families Office of Licensing and Department of Health's Covid-related mandates The Learning Circle YMCA's hours of operation, fees and program offerings may be subject to change. Rest assured, keeping your child safe remains our #1 priority.
