Our NYC Kids Camps for toddlers is a transitional program specifically designed for children ages 16-24 months. Campers have the opportunity to build classroom skills in a positive and supportive environment within a small group setting. Alongside their parent or caregiver, each child becomes an engaged and motivated learner. This program is the perfect way to prepare children for the separation process that lies ahead in a preschool setting.
The individual needs of each child are valued so that they result in the achievement of developmental milestones including:
Social and emotional skills such as positive self-identity, sense of competence, empathy, verbal and non-verbal communication, building relationships between children and adults, playing with others, etc.
Communication and language skills such as listening and responding, nonverbal and two-way communication, pre-literacy skills through picture books, etc.
Physical skills such as moving parts of the body and the whole body, using objects, spacial awareness, coordination and balance, etc.
Cognitive skills such as exploration, naming objects, early math skills, basic skills (shapes, colors, size comparison, etc.), cause and effect, time intervals, etc.
Creative arts such as pretend play, exploring art materials and musical instruments, listening and responding to music, etc.
