Toddler class meets twice a week for 3.5 hours per day and is lead by a listening and spoken language professional along with a teacher assistant. During the class, each child will receive 30 minutes of one-on-one instruction with a listening and spoken language professional. The desired outcomes of this classroom are for each child to build a word bank allowing the child to consistently and readily combine two to three words at home and school. This is accomplished through play based lessons which focus on the first 250 words learned by typical hearing toddlers. The structured day includes free choice work, circle time, art, dramatic play, snack, story time, and recess. Every part of the day focuses on language and vocabulary. The skills learned in the toddler classroom prepare children to enter our preschool and begin to learn simple sentences.
