1 Year Olds

1 Year Olds

At La Petite, we refer to our children aged one through three as toddlers.  They’re able to explore even more now that they’re mobile experts and they’re beginning to understand the world around them better than ever before.  For example, they can name a dog in a magazine, assemble things and follow direction.  As caregivers we will continue to encourage motor skills.

Here are just some of the things you can expect of La Petite as it relates to the development of your toddler:

  • Enhance large motor skills through activities like jumping, crawling and playing ball
  • Promote learning through language by talking with them about real time activities (what they’re doing, what you’re doing, etc.)
  • Play music, sing and dance
  • Paint with the children
  • Allow them to organize their toys, count and sort them and identify characteristics about them (color, shape, etc.)
  • Introduce and assist with potty training
