Young Toddlers: Age 1-2
Grays Ferry Early Learning Academy provides themed related, age appropriate activities to help young toddlers learn about themselves and how they fit into the world around them. Experiencing new activities and successfully completing tasks are very important to them.
Because toddlers learn through play and a “hands on” approach to the exploration of materials, ample space with a variety of selections of learning materials are provided. Curiosity and learning are at its peak at this very young age. We encourage open-ended activities and exploration to promote social and physical growth.
Through our weekly focus on Self Help Skills, toddlers participate in valuable experiences which will help them become more independent. They explore new tasks which refine eye-hand coordination, fine and gross motor development and problem solving.
