Cubs Class (1's turning 2)
This is a very special and fast moving year for children. Being a young toddler is a very transitional time. They are changing quickly from being a very dependent baby to a walking, talking toddler. They are learning and exploring new things everyday. This is usually the time that they learn to drink from a cup and feed themselves. They can verbalize a lot more and sometimes decide that they want to do everything "by themselves". This age is when they begin learning valuable social skills. Learning how to share and take turns does not come naturally. They start by exhibiting parallel play interspersed with interactive play. While they are experiencing all of this new independence, sometimes frustrations arise and they may have temper tantrums, push, hit, or bite their friends because they can't yet verbalize their feelings and wants. This is all normal and our experienced teachers know how to help the children through this exciting yet sometimes difficult time. We believe in working together with parents to make these transitions as easy on everyone as possible.
