Turning Sun’s Toddler Class is a welcoming and warm environment with a rich curriculum. The children are greeted daily with beautiful and engaging invitations for exploration and play. Children have the choice to play with and explore many different materials and can work in small groups or independently. Every morning, we have a morning meeting where we sing songs and the educators introduce a new material or skill, such as holding a worm, rolling clay, or using scissors. Like all Turning Sun classes, the Toddler Class uses the project approach. Whether the children are feeding the worms in their own class bin, exploring their identity through mirrors, making dough and baking bread, or painting with a local artist, each day is a part of the journey in their class project. Experts are also brought in to further experiences and deepen the learning. The Toddler Class also enjoys regular music classes and garden time with TSS’s Environmental Educator.
