We are focusing on four major developmental stages in this class.
Toddlers will be immersed in a language-rich environment essential for developing both receptive and expressive language skills. High-interest books, stories, songs, poems, and chants will amuse and delight toddlers. Vocabulary words are introduced and reinforced weekly through activity integration, colorful photo cards, and sign language to support all learning modalities.
We offer activities that support cause-and-effect relationships and problem solving to develop foundational skills for lifelong learning. Each week, your student will have a range of activity choices that will give little ones plenty of opportunities to express creativity, solve child-sized problems, and develop curiosity.
Physical and Development
The activity choices in this class will provide your toddler with fun physical challenges, action songs, and games that will build coordination, balance, and muscle strength. Children will develop both gross motor and fine motor skills as they squeeze, tear, roll, toss, catch, hug, hop, twist, run, and much more!
Social and Emotional Development
Mt. Olive places a special emphasis on social emotional development because learning best evolves through relationships and responsive care giving. Students will build confidence, learn impulse control, and develop social skills while teachers build trusting relationships with children through one-on-one, partner, and small-group.
Three-year-olds are special! They are transitioning from parallel play to interactive play, and their language capacity is blossoming. They are becoming much more mobile, and they are learning to show genuine affection and concern for their peers.
Our curriculum focusses on meeting the specific needs in the key areas of development:
- Interactive Play
- Following through on commitments
- Engaging in Read a-louds
- Vocabulary Development
- Introduction to the Alphabet
- Phonological Awareness
- Writing and fine motor skills
- One to one correspondence
- Reasoning and problem solving
- One-to-one correspondence

Through the power of The Letter People, we make learning safe and fun while modeling how to solve problems, resolve conflict, and build meaningful relationships. We offer daily math—and not just once, but three times a day—in whole group, small groups, and integrated learning centers. Our program’s literacy routines get children talking, singing, and moving their bodies as they explore emergent reading.
