Ages: 12 months to 36 months
At Mount Alvernia, we divide our Young Toddler program into two age classes to better meet the development needs of these children.
Our One Year Old program, for toddlers aged 12 to 24 months, is designed to help the children gain control over their motor skills, make and carry out decisions, cope with problems, wait with patience, and to have a feeling of good will and pride. The children to staff ratio is five to one.
For children aged 24 to 36 months, our Two Year Old program provides an encouraging, nurturing environment that supports physical, cognitive, social, emotional and creative development, all while fostering a positive sense of self and independence.
The staff ratio is six older toddlers for every one caregiver.
