YEARLINGS (12 months to 24 months)

Yearlings in our care receive individualized care from a team of two teachers. A balanced routine of quiet and active experiences will work in an effort to meet the individual developmental needs of each child.  Experienced teachers offer consistent repetition of daily routines with appropriate variety and contrast. 

Consistency of care as well as a comfortable, pleasant environment leads to the development of the Yearlings sense of trust and safety.  Our teachers provide reassurance, physical care, regular affection and tactile and vocal stimulation to the children.   

Teachers provide curriculum planning, providing opportunities for Yearlings to develop fine and gross motor skills through pushing, grabbing, throwing, mouthing, kicking and the development of self help skills.
