program

The SGP Senior Toddler program will offer an emergent, responsive, and developmentally appropriate curriculum. The focus will be on warm, responsive caregiving while also encouraging and supporting 1) hands-on active exploration with the five senses; 2) gaining independence and autonomy and 3) learning how to communicate their interests, feelings and needs to others. The Senior Toddler classroom will have a more open floor plan than that of the preschool room with specialized areas along the perimeter and the middle space left open for active play and movement to support a sensory-motor approach to learning. The teachers will be given the autonomy necessary to incorporate children’s interests, contributions, ideas and needs as well as parent input and preferences into the planning process and daily experiences of children.
