Toddlers are naturally active explorers. A toddler’s main way of learning is through active play and exploration. Little Saints Drouin offers toddlers numerous opportunities for active and engaged play. A variety of experiences allows your toddler to develop an understanding of concepts, solve problems and develop imagination and creativity. The framework’s vision is for all children to experience play-based learning that is engaging and builds success for life.

Toddlers have a growing sense of independence and they are learning to be self-determining. Our educators support your child to develop their self-help skills. These can include feeding themselves, putting on or taking off clothes and washing their own hands.

Toddlers are learning about their emotions, as well as other people’s emotions. Little Saints Drouin’s educators understand and take time to work with children to encourage their understanding and control of their developing emotions. We support children to develop their social skills, such as turn-taking and becoming more social playing alongside their peers.

At Little Saints Drouin educators provide a language-rich environment to support the rapid language acquisition of a toddler such as singing songs, reading stories and dramatic play.
