Toddler 1-   Ages 18 months to 24 months

Monkeys

Our Monkey Room is for toddlers approximately 18 months to 27 months of age.  Our ratio for this room is at least one adult for every six toddlers.  At this age children become much more independent as they explore the world around them.  They have a rapidly expanding vocabulary which we nurture with story time, a quiet reading corner, and lots of social interaction both with the teachers as well as the other children.  This is also the age were they begin to engage in pretend play.  We offer a wide variety of dramatic play materials to foster this new found way of play.    As the children near two years of age we will begin discussing transitioning them to our Cheetah Room- Toddler 2.  Before we transition we would like your child to begin showing interest in toilet training.  We want you to be a big part of our Bubbles & Blocks family so the lead teacher will have several discussions with you as your child nears transition time.

 


Meet our lead Monkey teacher, Ms. Katie!

 Katie is currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Family Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln!
