  • Halloween Parade Event (P-MS)

    October 28, 2016 @ 8:45 am - 9:45 am

    In celebration of Halloween, *Primary, Elementary, and Middle School students are invited to participate in our annual costume parade. Parents are invited to stay for the parade, followed by a short singalong for Primary and Lower Elementary students and parents. Primary, Elementary, and Middle School students may come to school dressed in costume. Primary children should wear their costumes over their clothes so that they can easily be removed after the parade, while Elementary children can *bring *clothes in a bag to change into after the parade. We request that costumes are tasteful and do not restrict a child's movement. No masks or play weapons of any sort, please! On this day, faculty will be present at the Elementary and Primary entrances for morning drop off as usual or feel free to park your car and walk your child into the building. (We ask you park in either the lower lot or at the church lot adjacent to ours. We would like to keep the upper lot open for our Toddler families so they can walk their little ones into the building.) Upon arrival, students should proceed to their classroom. Parents are welcome to have a cup of coffee in the main foyer while waiting for the parade to start.

Developmental Milestones

At this age, children are experiencing dramatic changes in body and brain to support the emergence of a wide array of motor, perceptual, and intellectual capacities. The use of language is emerging as toddlers begin to use their words to communicate. Intimate ties to others are formed.

Curriculum Highlights

To be a toddler is to be curious. With this in mind, the environment is a prepared “little society.” Each child is encouraged to become a functioning member of the society and to explore it fully. Multi-age classrooms feature custom-sized tables and chairs, sinks and stools, bookshelves and mirrors, and indoor and outdoor play areas, all designed to appeal to the child’s natural curiosity.

Activities are positioned around the room for toddlers to choose independently. Each activity deals with a particular theme, skill, or subject of value to toddler development. These activities allow toddlers to begin to experience concepts of sequence, form, shape, movement, and sound. The activities change and evolve as the child grows physically, emotionally, and intellectually.


Toddlers very much enjoy learning practical skills. Activities, which up until now have been going on around them, but which they can now do themselves, are seemingly irresistible: getting dressed, preparing lunch, setting the table, sweeping the floor, etc. Being able to do things for themselves creates an instantaneous surge of pride at this age.
