Caterpillars and Butterflies

The Caterpillars and Butterflies classes are for younger toddlers, anywhere from 12 to 24 months. These children are beginning to explore their world and their independence. They begin eating at the table in chairs for lunch and they begin attending weekly chapel with the older children. The teachers complete lesson plans which include daily art, music, science, Bible, and play times. They are learning to feed their pet fish and water their classroom plants, and they are working on their social and emotional skills. These children are also included in our annual Christmas and Graduation programs, held in the evenings. Hearing them sing Jesus Loves Me and watching them do introductory sign language is enough to melt one’s heart. :)

The ratio for this class is 1:6.
