Toddler Child Care In Jacksonville
(age 2)

Our Early Learning Curriculum

Our Jacksonville day care center offers an early learning curriculum for toddlers. Teachers invest lots of energy into our highly curious one- and two-year-old children. Exploring every book and block around them is what they do best.

Our teachers are highly qualified and trained to encourage safe growth and development. There is plenty of time for outdoor play. They teach children how to learn social skills and make new friends while running, jumping and climbing during their daily outside playtime. The next activity is lunchtime during which we proudly serve the USDA Child Care Food Program-approved nutritious lunch. Next, it’s afternoon nap time and listening to lullaby songs.

Toddlers are now developing social skills and beginning to communicate with adults and classroom friends. As vocabulary grows, independence grows, too. To help with skill development, our toddler program is designed for large-and-small group activities. Small-group activities are designed to meet the specific needs of each individual child.

Unique learning opportunities offer direct involvement and exposure to curriculum-based theme lessons that change twice every month. These themes offer children new experiences through multiple activities in order to gain knowledge and master each learning event or weekly subject. Social skills are enhanced and become part of a firm foundation for the coming preschool years.

Our Foundations for Success Infant & Toddler Model is a proven curriculum

Relationships form the foundation for children to experience the world and be shaped for the future. Supported by current research and combined with direct experience in child care settings, the Foundations for Success Infant/Toddler Model allows teachers to implement appropriate learning experiences to raise the quality of each child’s learning experience. This enhances child development and the ability to learn in the early years of life. The relationships between teachers and children – along with experiences in movement, senses and Perception, and language – provide an essential foundation to progress developmentally, enter school ready to learn, and become successful life-long learners.

The model curriculum focuses on key areas affecting all other areas of development. 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 the individual needs of your child is our primary role so potential is maximized. We believe our model provides our teachers with the best tools to help children gain the knowledge to become successful in the preschool classroom.
