We’ve created a special group for our older infants providing more challenging activities. The children are given the opportunity to explore various areas of their development through gross and fine motor activities, art, sensory experiences, circle time, outside time and much more! Developing self-help skills such as using utensils at meals, drinking from a regular cup and communicating needs, starts children on the path of becoming an independent learner.
A lot of exciting benchmarks are met in the Wobbler room:
Building or continuing strong and secure attachments to caregivers
Becoming a strong walker
Building vocabulary (identifying objects), using “Baby Sign” to increase communication skills
Language development through songs, rhymes and teacher interaction and narration
Social skills: sharing, using our words, gentle touches
