The first three years of your child's life will include the greatest recognizable changes in growth and development. This is a time when children are discovering themselves emotionally, socially, physically, and cognitively. With this in mind, a schedule will be put in place as predictability fosters the most relaxed learning environment. Routines will be created with hellos & goodbyes, diapering & toileting, eating, sleeping, and getting dressed. Within these routines your child's teacher will focus on individualizing activities, guiding proper behavior, maintaining a safe, healthy environment, and evaluating progress. At North Star Academy the students are separated by their birth dates into multiple Toddler classrooms. This allows us to group children of like maturity together, allowing the teachers to tailor each activity to the development of the class. At a time when sensory learning is so powerful to a young child, we feel that education expands beyond the classroom walls which is why we have adopted an Inside & Out Approach to Education.
