The natural curiosity of toddlers lends itself to an environment where creativity and self-expression form the basis of the classroom experience. Toddlers demonstrate increasing competence in gross motor skills running, jumping, hopping, throwing, kicking, and catching as well as increasing control of drawing, writing, and art tools. The toddler stage is a time of heightened curiosity as awareness of self and others increases. From a greater awareness of basic patterns and ability to identify basic colors to increasing attempts to perform self-care skills independently, the toddler classroom is a great experience.
