The toddlers of Celeste were enthralled in exploring with all of their senses during the month of May. The only true way for a toddler to engage in their surroundings is by being able to touch, see, taste, hear, and smell the world around them.
Some smelling bottles were brought into the classroom, some food prep work, some musical shakers, puzzles with different textures, and of course coloring and painting with different colors. All of these works captured the toddlers interest and helped build their concentration for the world around them.
May also brought a visit from the Reptile Man. He captured their attention with snakes, lizards, and even a crocodile. It was truly amazing to watch all of the toddlers getting to see these beautiful creatures up close and personal.
The entire infant and toddler program also had a great community park event at Ferrel McWhirter on a Saturday morning. The toddlers could be seen talking to animals, running through the grass together, as well as parents enjoying the company of each other. A great time to build community!
June promises to bring more smiles to the toddlers of Celeste and MCH, as the playground starts to come to completion and the toddlers get the chance to explore this new and exciting play area. There will also be more sunshine and days for exploring our nature trail, and the goats and ducks here on campus. The school year will wrap up with a toddler field day full of bubbles, playing outside, and other creative outdoor experiences. It’s sure to be a great ending to the school year!
