Our Toddler program as with all programs at Newpark are emergent and follow the child’s lead. Our physical environment and the materials in the environment promote natural growth, development, exploration and inquiry.
How Does Learning Happen? Ontario's Pedagogy for the Early Years focuses on observation of the children at play... through these observation we gain an understanding of the children's knowledge and we document their knowledge. These observation allow the educators to plan and implement invitation to play and inquiry based learning objectives that follow the children's interests.
At Newpark, we strongly encourage Toddlers to practice self-help skills, make appropriate choices and build their problem solving skills; all of which will help build self esteem.
The educators at Newpark provide an unparalleled level of interaction and individual nurturing through their daily activities.
The Toddler curriculum includes:
Small group activities planned to develop specific skills
Inquiries or invitation to play, that involves all the senses
Daily group gathering time
