Léman Explorers

16-24 months


The toddler years are a period of tremendous exploration and growth, with limitless learning for young children. Developed by Léman's experienced early childhood educators, the Explorers program is a series of "grown up and me" toddler classes for children 16-24 months old designed to foster social, emotional, cognitive and physical development while building confidence and independence.

Our program serves as children's first school experience, acclimating toddlers to a classroom environment and community practices to establish and reinforce positive routines. Through guided play, interactive story time, art, music and movement, the Explorers program sets the foundation for future academic success in an engaging and developmentally-appropriate setting that ignites children's curiosity and harnesses their sense of wonder for the years to come.

 
First School Experience

Léman Explorers introduces children to becoming a part of a classroom community. Students engage in routines like sitting on the carpet for a meeting and staying at the table while eating a snack. We introduce concepts of sharing and turn-taking, all community practices that prepare them for the routines of preschool.

Classroom Community

Each day, students experience what it means to be part of a community of learners. They participate in activities that bring them together as a group, beginning their day gathering at the meeting area where they are greeted by name, hear the schedule of the day and participate in a group activity.

Social and Emotional Learning

Social and emotional development is highly emphasized for Léman Explorers. In order to be a successful student, the skills of sharing, patience, and overall self-regulation must be supported and developed at an early age.

Play-Based Learning

Play is the work of children. Our toddler program exposes students to developmentally appropriate learning experiences that build pre-academic skills and socialization. To our students, they are engaged in fun, exciting activities.

Self-Directed Learning

Our classrooms are designed to foster self-directed learning and help young students start to identify their passions and interests. Exploration centers are set up around the room that focus on individual and small group learning. Sensory, fine motor, dramatic play, and literacy activities are rotated throughout the classroom.

World Languages

Students are provided opportunities for exposure to the Mandarin and Spanish languages through stories, games, songs, and music. World Language lessons are taught in comprehension-based communicative language approaches which allows students to access the meaning of the language through multi-sensory experiences.
