New Odyssey for Toddlers!

At New Odyssey all toddlers are different!!  Their development occurs at a rapid pace and this is the stage where individual uniqueness is most evident.  In an effort to keep toddlers with peers of similar developmental levels together, at New Odyssey for Children,  toddlers are divided into smaller classroom groups: Innovators and Trailblazers. The Innovators’ classroom is the perfect learning environment for your child as they transition from infancy to toddler and the children in this program typically range from mobile children  to 20 or 22 months.   The Trailblazers’ classroom is just that – a classroom where the children are becoming extremely independent and have the desire to take charge of their entire day.  The children in the Trailblazers’ program progress up to the age of three.  These ages are just guidelines;  at New Odyssey for Children we also take into consideration the developmental needs of each child.   

Key Features of our Toddler Program:

We incorporate the best age appropriate practices and procedures into our every day operating routine, combined with nurturing teachers,  to ensure your toddler’s developmental success:

  • Teachers are dedicated to the development of bonding skills, with other toddlers as well as the teachers, and building self-esteem.
  • Teacher -to-child ratio:       1:5 Innovators          1:7 Trailblazers
  • Smaller ratios allow for optimal time for positive teacher-child interactions and allows us to better meet the individual needs of each child.
  • Primary care groups give us the ability to implement small group activities with children at the same stage of development.
  • An individualized report is provided to parents on a daily basis detailing their child’s activities of the day.
  • Individualized portfolios and anecdotal notes are created to monitor the ongoing developmental progress of each child and to ensure our teachers expose each child to every learning domain in the classroom.
  • We initiate potty training efforts in conjunction with the parent’s involvement and advance at each child’s own pace.
  • Twice daily visits to our toddler-specific playground to enjoy climbing, going down the slide, and swinging (weather permitting)
