Although parents often feel guilty about putting their children in daycare, choosing the right preschool program for your toddler can actually help improve many areas of their early development. When looking for toddler care that you can trust, it is important to choose a program that provides a safe and comfortable learning environment for your child. At Pasadena Preschool Academy, we are committed to providing your child with a safe learning environment that allows them to develop in the following areas.
As a parent, you understand that children are constantly learning and exploring. Through many years of childcare and teaching experience, we’ve found that the most effective programs help your child learn through hands-on activities, crafts, games, art, music, reading, and play. The best preschool programs implement these activities to stimulate the intellectual development of your child through each aspect of their day.
Although parental separation can be difficult for many young children, it can also create an opportunity for emotional development. We understand that offering caring and consistent personal interaction is essential to the emotional development of your child. Providing small classes with a 4:1 teacher to child ratio allows our experienced and caring staff to focus on the individual needs of your child.
Choosing the right toddler care program can also help develop your child’s social skills. As children grow, appropriate social interaction with other children and adults becomes increasingly important. In our unique program, toddlers learn to share with other children, to clean up after themselves, daily self-care skills, empathy, etiquette, and proper manners in a fun and engaging environment.
Children learn best through hands-on activity and play. Toddlers especially need age appropriate toys and activities to help stimulate the development of fine motor skills. Along with a variety of fun toys and projects, we also provide a separate toddler play-yard to encourage the safe development of your child’s fine and gross motor skills.
