Red Room II
Red room II provides care for children ranging in age from 15 months to 2 years of age. We provide a healthy, safe and nurturing environment that encourages young children’s natural growth and development. We strive to foster each child’s individual needs through social, emotional, language, cognitive and motor development.
The teachers provide an inviting environment for the children to learn developmentally appropriate skills. We believe that children learn through play. Child –centered activities are available for a long period of the day. Sensory development is explored in various learning opportunities throughout the days.
Not only are the children becoming more independent at this age, but they are also learning how to express themselves in positive ways. Teachers point out and discuss instances of positive social interaction among children throughout the day by giving the children words to communicate.
Some children show interest in potty training in this classroom. Teachers and parents will work together to assist the child in this interest.
We believe that the children’s learning takes place not only in the classroom, but outside the classroom as well. Red II provides an enriched environment both inside and outside the classroom to provide the most learning experiences possible for your child.
