Two Year Old Child Care in Jacksonville at Rattles to Tassels

Day Care in Jacksonville for Toddlers – 2 Year Olds

Our Early Learning Curriculum

Our day care in Jacksonville, FL provides exceptional care for toddlers. Our loving toddler teachers are ready to invest lots of energy into your highly curious one and two year old children. Exploring every book and block around them is what they do best. As with all children, they absolutely love their sand and water table.

At Rattles to Tassels Learning Center, our child care teachers are qualified and trained to know how to encourage growth and development in your child while ensuring they do it safely.

There is plenty of time for outdoor play as well. Your child will learn social skills and make new friends while running, jumping and climbing during their daily outside play time. After that, your child will enjoy a USDA Child Care Food Program approved nutritious lunch. And shortly after that, they will be ready for their afternoon nap while listening to lullaby songs for children. Some may need a soft back rub to promote the calming effect needed to get the right amount of well deserved rest.

Toddlers are already developing their social skills and beginning to communicate with adults and their classroom friends. As their vocabulary grows, their independence will grow as well. To help your child develop these skills, our toddler child care program is designed for large and small group activities. Small group activities are designed to meet the unique needs of each individual child.

We provide unique learning opportunities through direct involvement and exposure to theme based lessons that change twice every month. Through these curriculum based themes your child will experience multiple activities to gain the knowledge and master each learning event or weekly subject. With the help of our child care teachers, children within the one and two year old age groups work towards enhancing their social skills which gives them a firm foundation for their coming preschool years.

Foundations for Success Infant & Toddler Model

Relationships form the foundation through which every child experiences his or her world. What children experience within these relationships shapes their overall development. Supported by current research, and combined with direct experience in child care settings, the Foundations for Success Infant/Toddler Model provides a positive support structure to implement appropriate learning experiences for infants and toddlers in child care classrooms, thus, raising the quality of the child’s learning experiences. These experiences will enhance the development of children and their ability to learn in the early years of life. The relationships that are established in quality child care classrooms between the teachers and the children, along with experiences in Movement, Senses & Perception, and Language, provide the essential foundation necessary for children to progress developmentally, to enter school ready to learn, and to become successful life-long learners.

The Foundations for Success Infant/Toddler Model focuses on four foundational areas necessary for supporting infant and toddler development. Relationships are central to the model as they affect all of the other areas of development, the Senses & Perception, Movement, and Language
foundations. In fact, no one area exists in isolation. Infants and toddlers learn by interacting with and acting on their environments. Ideally, each child experiences all four foundations simultaneously, creating a unique and personal learning experience. Responding to these individual needs is the primary role of the teacher and helps to maximize each child’s potential.

The Foundations for Success Infant/Toddler Model provides the teacher with the tools to help each child gain the knowledge to become successful in their preschool classroom.
