At Northeast Stars, we welcome toddlers into a warm, secure, positive, and challenging environment where they can comfortably begin to explore the world.

Teachers provide individual attention to help each child deal with positive experiences as well as frustrations in navigating his or her independence.

The toddler classroom focuses on several key developmental areas:

  • Practical life—including care of person and bathroom independence
  • Functional independence—completion of work cycles
  • Grace and courtesy—living in community with others
  • Language—enrichment and extension
  • Socialization—beginnings of social membership
  • Movement exploration—large and refined motor skills

Every toddler will engage in many activities to support sensory and perpetual development, self-help skills, physical and motor skills, and social and emotional growth such as:

  • Pouring, sweeping, dusting, and table setting
  • Buttoning and zipping
  • Knobbed puzzles and bead stringing
  • Music and singing
  • Nature walks
  • Field trips to cultural festivals and museums
  • Storytelling
