At Mini Miracles ChildCare, our Toddler Program focuses on the following:
Our caregivers allow children to explore the environment while supervising and encouraging their play. Books, classical music, pattern-making materials, matching manipulatives and interlocking toys that can be taken apart and put back together.
Our caregivers nurture children throughout the day both verbally and non-verbally; we allow time for dramatic play providing our children, time to make friends and develop and establish positive emotions.
Talking, singing, reading and naming of objects on a daily basis. As well as cardboard picture books, a variety of iPad learning videos and puppets.
We allow time for children to walk, climb, run, jump and dance. Improving gross and fine motor skills.
