ROSEBUDS

The Rosebuds classroom is for our youngest students, ages 12 months to 2 years. In this classroom, children are learning the first stages of independence and beginning to develop their physical, emotional, cognitive, and social skills. We aim to honor this development by respecting each child's individual growth and fostering a sense of wonder and curiosity within the classroom environment. The Rosebuds classroom is based on the philosophy of Primary Care. This means that each child will have a teacher assigned to help them through their day. The child can develop a close and consistent relationship with their Primary Care teacher, forming a close attachment which promotes independence, trust and self-confidence within the environment. Growth at this age happens rapidly, and our teachers and the learning environment are adaptable to the child's needs and development. We aim to provide the children with opportunities to explore and develop their gross motor skills; such as climbing, crawling, jumping, walking, riding, and throwing balls. Both the indoor and the outdoor classrooms are equipped with developmentally appropriate materials to promote successful learning and growth.
