5 Benefits of Our Toddler Program - Our Curriculum

*Healthy Beginnings*

Whether you’re a parent, childcare provider or teacher, you want the very best for the children in your life. But how do you know you’re giving a child the very best you can? It’s a cliché, but it’s also true—children simply do not come with instruction manuals. 

At Themba we have adopted the Healthy Beginnings Curriculum.  For more information on the Healthy Beginnings program
please click here.

*Spanish Immersion Program*

Research shows the most effective way for children to acquire a second language is to integrate instruction into the standard curriculum children are already learning. Research shows that immersion education students outperform students in traditional language classes, do as well as or better than non-immersion students on standardized tests, and have a greater appreciation of cultural diversity.

At Themba, we know every moment with a toddler is precious. Our teachers work work hard to bond with your child and to develop trust.

There’s no doubt that toddlers are often a bundle of energy. We welcome that energy and excitement because we know that it’s a natural part of growth and learning. We’ll channel that energy into positive learning experiences, giving them plenty of room to move and explore. We provide nurturing guidance as they develop physical skills and master emerging milestones.

We emphasize your child’s development, rather than specific age, because all children grow and learn at their own pace, and in their own unique way. Activities are designed to address the individual needs and abilities of each child, in each classroom.
