CLC has three toddler classrooms.
- Children 15 months to 26 months
- Children 2 years and up that are not currently potty training
- CLC cannot accommodate potty training in this classroom as their is no bathroom
- Children 2 years and 4 months or older
- Potty training occurs in this classroom
In these classrooms, toddlers are learning to explore the world on their own with the guidance and care of their teachers. Toddlers start to communicate in short sentences or phrases and their personalities start to radiate from within. They make close friendships with their classmates and explore which activities in the classroom they like the most.
In these classrooms, children follow the daily schedules more closely and start to take notice of their daily routine.
No bottles or pacifiers are used in the toddler classrooms. Only sippy cups and normal drinking cups.
Owl teachers will work closely with parents to assure that children are potty trained before moving on to early preschool at about two and a half years of age. We ask full cooperation from parents in potty training. We recommend parents start to potty train on a long weekend at home with only the use of underwear. We have found pull ups feel the same to children as diapers, this is why we recommend only underwear once we start to potty train! Teachers will then pick up the potty training process the following Monday at CLC.
With the full support of parents at home and full support of teachers at school, children should be potty trained within no time!
