Kiddie Steps 4 You | Chicago, IL | Child DevelopmentAs children begin to walk and talk regularly, their curiosity drives them to explore. Our toddler program encourages children’s developing independence by helping them hone self-help skills, such as the abilities to feed themselves, relate to others and make choices.

These skills and the opportunity to play and discover empower children to become more confident learners as they investigate new concepts. For instance, when a toddler plays with a shape sorter toy, the child is developing basic problem-solving skills and learning what different shapes look and feel like.

Our get set classroom provides the perfect transition from our toddler program to our preschool program. Children become more adept at using utensils like spoons, paintbrushes and markers. As they master their fine motor skills, they play with a purpose.

When your child picks out a puzzle and tries to put it together, your child is planning and completing a simple project. This helps the child develop feelings of competence and self-esteem, setting the foundation for future learning success.

All programs are customized to your child’s progress, needs and age. Schedule a tour today to experience a day in the life of your toddler!
