One Year Old Class

A child’s first birthday is a momentous occasion! They have learned so much throughout their first year. Here at Gingerbread we recognize that this is only the beginning.

Once your child turns one they move up into what we call our transitional one year old class room also know as PK1. In this class your child will begin to learn to sleep on a mat, feed themselves, and become more independent. Our young one year olds graduate to our older one year old class better known as our AK1 class once they are steady on their feet.

We will work diligently to make sure our students develop fine and gross motor skills by allowing them to play and explore in a safe and appealing environment. Our teachers combine clear simple directions with repetition to ensure that our students make great progress in their thinking skills and development. We understand that everyone learns differently and at different paces so our teachers make sure that the daily routine is flexible enough not to frustrate the children yet engaging enough to ensure progress and a fun filled day. We are able to accomplish this through stories, finger plays, songs, toys, and organized as well as self-directed play.
