Toddlers

The Dynamic Dolphin Room is for our Terrific Toddlers!

Happy smiles at GBLC

Happy smiles!

Toddlers are always on the move, learning and exploring their world with amazing curiosity and imagination!

At Great Beginnings Learning Center, we help your toddler engage all their senses with plenty of learning and fun! We call our Toddlers classroom the Dynamic Dolphin Room!

Our Toddlers learn through many different activities but especially through play, both inside the classroom and out. We take nature walks looking at the trees, the sky, discussing the weather…what kind of day is it? Do you see your shadow? Are you wearing a coat?

They listen to things around them…are the birds chirping? Children playing? The toddlers learn about many of the wondrous smells, sights and sounds of outside.

Our outdoor playground holds many activities of learning: our garden where the toddlers learn about the different vegetables being grown, and hands-on learning by getting to pick the vegetables.

Exercise is very important. We do daily exercises which includes dance and cardio. Inside the classroom we explore our world through use of the sensory table playing with water, sand and play dough, and various arts and crafts projects. Language learning includes saying hello in different languages and counting to 20 in English and 10 in Spanish.
