The Forest is full of curious toddlers who love to explore! As they continue to work on their walking (and running) skills they also start to learn their words. We use sign language as well to help them express themselves. They now share family style meals, so they get to practice their fine motor skills when they use silverware and cups too! So much of their learning is through play, so our team makes sure to incorporate exciting teaching moments throughout the day.
