Warp Drive Classroom
Welcome to the Toddler Room for ages 19 months to 36 months. My name is Katie Collins, the Lead Teacher.
The classroom is set up to allow a balance of quiet activities and active play. Time has also been allotted throughout the day for art, music, math or science. Outdoor play will be a regular part of our day with time set aside mid-morning and again in the afternoon. All meals will be eaten in our classroom using family style service, meaning the teachers eat with the children to model manners and assist with serving meal components. Naps are also an important part of our day to allow children’s bodies to rest and recharge for play. Nap time also allows staff to prepare for afternoon activities and check in with parents.
ZALA has adopted the Creative Curriculum in all the classrooms to support development and learning through play, while fostering positive relationships with the loving caregivers. In the Toddler Room our days will be filled with discovery and knowledge building through daily routines and experiences.
