Senior Toddlers

Sunbrook Academy’s Senior Toddlers are generally aged from 24 months to 36 months, however, all of our programs accelerate or decelerate the progress of our students based on the individual needs, the developmental level, and the accomplishments of the children. Our Senior Toddler program utilizes a low teacher-to-student ratio that allows the necessary time for positive interaction between teacher and child, creating healthy interpersonal bonds and building the child’s self-esteem. All children are encouraged to increase their gross and fine motor skills through exploration of various manipulative materials and developmentally appropriate toys. Our goals for Senior Toddlers are to expand their vocabulary, teach the alphabet, learn to count, toilet train, and broaden their self-regulation skills while using discovery learning to support their growing independence.
