We’re here to satisfy your child’s curiosity.
Rainbow Child Development Center encourages independence in toddlers as they begin to explore and discover new things in their surroundings.
How does Rainbow Child support 1 to 2-year-old children in their development?
We allow the children free play in our developmental centers daily to foster their social and oral communication growth. Providing a dramatic play area that encourages the children to dress and undress themselves promotes the use of their imaginations as they play with their friends. Sharing as they learn pronouns such as: “his” and “hers” encourages the children to successfully complete their “mine” stage.
We provide lots of love and care to our two and three-year-olds to help them with separation anxiety from those familiar to them. Assisting them with their anxiety will prepare them as they begin to transition into the academic classroom setting. The children will have opportunities to meet future teachers as they visit their classrooms for liberal arts and specialty activities.
- Movement (Gross Motor)
We provide a variety of dance styles to continuously promote their gross motor development. The children also participate in activities daily during circle and dramatic playtime. Our children are scheduled in the morning and afternoon to spend time exploring outside using outside play equipment and sports games to aid them in their development of alternating feet.
Through our use of the Abeka curriculum, we teach Language Arts and Math. We strive to collaborate with our parents to mold the children into well-rounded citizens that are lifelong learners and contributors to society.
Children between these ages are participating in a show-and-tell which increases their vocabulary, oral communication, and articulation. Throughout our program, we encourage students to use their words when communicating with their friends, teachers, and other staff. We also want children to understand that they should use their words to problem-solve instead of physical contact when there is a disagreement.
- Hand and Finger Skills (Fine Motor)
We incorporate creative learning through Art to develop fine motor skills. The children are learning to use scissors, trace, and write their names.
- Potty Training
Potty training is a very critical part of your child’s development called Shame and Doubt versus Autonomy. Getting them through this stage we use positive reinforcement and lots of patience starting at 24 months. We begin with pull-ups and end with the children wearing (big boy and big girl) underwear.
