Pre-Toddlers are active learners! What teachers call 'developing gross and fine motor skills', the children see as having fun with finger paints, diving into balls of play-doh, and creating original art-work with colored markers and crayons. Story-time and singing songs help Pre-Toddlers build vocabulary and language skills. Even at this young age, they learn to socialize and make friends. How? By indoor and outdoor playtime, sitting down at a table to eat, and helping clean up. The activities sound so basic. But the lessons learned here will stay with them.
