In our older toddler classroom, our 2- to 3-year-olds learn in the same flexible and creative environment as the young toddler room, with additional learning opportunities.

The curriculum for Lakewood Child Care Center’s older toddler classroom focuses on emerging abilities to play with other children. It also facilitates children’s development of knowledge through their interactions with materials, each other, and adults. 

Our teachers address the wide variations in toddlers’ interests, temperaments, and patterns of growth and development through classroom activities and lesson plans.
