Welcome to the Mini Masters Learning Academy’s Toddler Classrooms. The primary teachers in these classrooms are Ms. Sarah. Ms. Leticia and Ms. Tiffany. In our toddler classrooms, we follow a ratio of one staff member to every five toddlers. Our classroom enrollment for our Toddler One is five toddlers. We feel that our small group atmosphere is an ideal environment for toddlers since they often oscillate between asserting their independence and the need for comfort and nurturing. Our classroom enrollment for our Toddler Two classroom is 10 toddlers. We feel that this classroom environment is an ideal way for our older toddlers to assert their independence and allows them the opportunity to learn how to interact with other toddlers in a controlled and positive way.
Toddlers are beginning to think about their actions, solve problems and understand language. Our toddler classrooms are designed to promote the cognitive, communicative, sensory and motor development of each child. Therefore, Ms. Sarah, Ms. Leticia and Ms. Tiffany will establish a daily routine/schedule and will begin to introduce concepts such as sharing, talking, self discipline, simple table manners, short circle times and sign language. Simple art projects with each toddler, such as finger painting, will help to teach the toddlers to control small-hand muscles and coordinate eye and hand movement. A weekly lesson plan will be posted that designates a theme for the week and will incorporate language/books related to the theme as well as large and fine motor skills, art/sensory activities and opportunities for social and personal growth.
