Toddler Daycare Center Buffalo, NY
[18 months -27 months]
This is a play group experience that responds to each child's growing interests and activities. Large and small motor coordination is developed through games and the opportunity to play with simple puzzles, pop-beads and large blocks.
Language development is encouraged at "Circle Time" through songs, finger plays, and stories.
Throughout art activities, the children are introduced to colors and shapes. Also at this time, social and self-help skills that develop independence and a basic trust of others in the group are acquired.
