The Caterpillar room is designed for the 12-24 month old child. Ambulatory exploration is the rule of the day. Waddlers continue to learn by touching, jumping and running. More challenging sensory and motor activities are explored in this program. Sign language is reinforced. Children are nurtured and able to investigate their surroundings in a safe environment. Emerging social skills are strengthened and playing next to a friend becomes a real possibility.
