A Duckling is usually between 1 and 2 years old. These little ones are just beginning to walk, talk and learn some basic skills.

We have a ratio of 5 children to 1 teacher in this room.

In the Duckling room you will begin to see “interest centers.” These are areas in the classroom set up with equipment and activities to encourage physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development.

During this stage the children begin feeding themselves, say their first words, go from two naps to one, and even transition from the crib to a mat. It’s a very exciting time for everyone to watch all the changes take place.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to participate as much as they like in our program.
