Your Toddler

As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem and curiosity, our Creative Curriculum program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that young children learn best through hands-on experiences. Each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, trust their new environment, as well as make new friends.

Your Toddler's Day

State Line Children's World toddler curriculum enables your toddler to grow in confidence and learn to master walking tall in his or her new world. The Toddler teachers wear many hats, such as a comforter, storyteller, diaper changer and playmate.

From first steps to first words, your toddler will begin to experience the world in new ways at State Line Children's World. Once they master walking, their gross motor skills will grow by leaps and bounds. They learn to jump, tip toe, march, throw and kick a ball, just to name a few. Your toddlers will learn to enjoy storytelling time.

We will introduce small books for their little hands to turn the pages with a lot of textures and bright colors, which they can feel.

Toddlers will have the opportunity to go outside and play with age appropriate outdoor activities every day. We have outdoor sheltered walkways to provide shade from the heat and inclement weather.

Your Two Year Old

At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. As two-year-olds begin to exert their independence, our Creative Curriculum program opens their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. The approach our teachers use engages the two year old with a blend of music, art, movement, dramatic play, science and manipulatives. All of these will provide the early education fundamentals your child will need as they continue on to preschool. Our teachers are sensitive to the needs of children at different ages and pay close attention to the individual capabilities and interests of the children as they explore gross motor skills such as: jumping, climbing, and balancing, throwing and catching. We will provide monthly curriculum schedules to our parents with the understanding that each day may require certain flexibility to meet the needs of each child.

Your Three Year Olds

As our preschools gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Creative Curriculum program fosters that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. We will also provide a healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing to keep them physically active, as well.

Your Three Year Old Day:

Upon arrival children participate in group activities, wash their hands and eat breakfast. We also provide lunch and supper on a daily regimented schedule. After breakfast, they receive a bathroom break and wash their hands.

Our teachers bring the group together for morning routines, sharing time, a featured activity, literacy-building, and a discussion of the day's activities. Children choose from activities in the creative arts, dramatic play, writing, reading a book from the county library, using building blocks and manipulatives or exploring our math, science and sensory centers. Teachers implement small-group activities, focusing on skill-building activities and observational assessment.

Children can select from a variety of outdoor activities. Our playgrounds are age appropriate with spacious grounds for to play and will enhance the preschooler's gross motor skills.

After outdoor play the children prepare for lunch. They receive a bathroom break, wash their hands, and help set the tables before dining together. After lunch the teachers read aloud to the children as they settle down for naps.
