UPCCC LITTLE EXPLORERS PROGRAM
14 Months to 18 Months
Welcome to Little Explorers! Your baby has grown into a toddler and will soon become a two-year-old. This is a time full of changes, fun and new experiences. In order to help your child develop his or her identity as a "big kid" instead of a "baby" and to adapt to new surroundings and expectations, we promote certain behaviors and actions using the Creative Curriculum.
Promoted Behaviors through the Creative Curriculum:
-Encourage the use of manners, especially please and thank you
-Encourage your child to use words to express his or her emotions or questions (use key phrases such as "use your words, please")
-Demonstrate to your child how to follow directions ("That sign says "stop" so let's stop and look both ways.")
-Work and play with your child to develop self-esteem and worth (spending time with your child makes him or her feel important to you)
We look forward to sharing this time of new experiences, challenges, fun and growth with your child.
