The most important thing is that each toddler feels safe and loved. We make a special effort to help each child get through his separation anxiety and meld with the class. This includes posting family photos, creating "me" books, reading stories about families, and giving huge hugs!
Alpine's toddlers are learning social skills and making friends.
In general, toddlers prefer playing alone or next to each other. As children get older, they merge into more interactive play. We support interactive play by offering pair and small group activities.
