The Class of the 2's...
At L'Atelier toddlers from 17 months to 2.5 years old join the Toddlers' class. Toddlers are explorers and researchers by nature. They learn and understand through their bodies and their senses. They touch, smell, taste, see, hear, pinch, squeeze, throw, catch, run, jump, climb, dance, sing, because they are making meaning of life.
The exploration of materials and objects started since birth, but now at school children are exposed to a wider diversity. They play with clay, paper, color, wood, fabrics, wire, light and much more... They give different meanings to them, get to know their properties, establish differences among them understanding what use can be given, make choices, and express their creative thinking. The encounter of materials supports the children to express their emotions in many different ways as they continue to discover their own identity.
