This orientation is for teachers and parents of toddlers (2 and 3 years of age). Working with toddlers is fun, but it can also be exacerbating. This course is designed to help you create reasonable goals and introduce age-appropriate methods for toddlers. Knowing what to expect, planning for success, and selecting teaching methods and fun learning activities are the key to success, and we are always open to your suggestions so please use the parent-teacher forum if you would like to share.
The Toddler Virtues class is for 3-year-old children, and for those slightly younger or older as developmentally appropriate. Many print outs are available to help you conduct fun activities off-line.
This class is designed to help the child develop a strong, moral, and independent character. Focus is on easy learning of basic virtues, social learning through playing, art, music, singing, dancing, and physical activities. Additional age-appropriate lessons in English language arts, early math, and other subjects are available.
The toddler does not have the mental or physical skills to work independently online. An adult must guide and encourage the child every step of the way and that's exactly what a toddler needs: one-on-one learning, sharing, and playing.
In Person Classes
It is strongly advised, especially during the first few classes for a parent or guardian to accompany the child. The adult does not have to be actively invovled in the lesson but the mere presence of a loved one is often enough to calm the child.
