EXPLORERS

Noun | ex-plor-ers | age: 19 months to 3 - 4 years | a.k.a. Toddlers


Explorers are characterized by independence and growth. Constantly seeking the unknown through adventure, they are bursting with energy and new ideas.

At Kepler Academy, we know that Early Childhood experiences change our brains in a way that affects our health and future development. Our basic cognitive structure establishes the foundation for more complex developments as we grow. By providing focused, positive experiences, we are building the architecture of the developing brain.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN EXPLORER

Our toddlers follow a consistent daily routine, including activities like snack time, circle time, arts, crafts, sensory play and practicing discovery skills, floor toys, learning time, cleaning up, toilet training, outdoor play, and nap time.

By acclimating children into their new environment, staff will promote security and independence through clear and consistent boundaries. Social values, group acceptance and cooperation will also be developed by providing opportunities to communicate spontaneously with caregivers and peers. Toddlers will frequently practice physical and fine motor skills. Through stories, poems, nursery rhymes, simple songs and conversation, Caregivers will promote their linguistic development.

At the end of their Explorer Journey, Toddlers will receive at least 4 more badges of accomplishment: Self-Help, Potty Training, Problem Solving and Shapes.

SELF-HELP

By providing “helping” activities, Kepler’s Explorers will gain that independence and pride of keeping their environment tidy and accomplishing tasks.

PROBLEM SOLVING

Children are guided through the process of trial and error through puzzles and other tools, where they can identify the problem and imaginatively work out a solution.
