My Mommy School Philosophy
Mommy School is all about constructive fun with developmentallyappropriate learning!
My philosophy is that toddlers learn through experiences. I believe that toddlerslearn by seeing and doing, so Mommy School is intended to be action-based. Ibelieve that most 2- and 3-year-olds are not yet ready for pencil/paper activities simply because they don’t learn this way! My hope is to provide youwith a few tools to help guide your toddler’s learning.For me, the most exciting part about teaching my toddler is seeing the worldthrough his eyes. He is starting to understand the world for the very first time!Because this is the first time that our toddlers are exposed to many concepts,please don’t expect your toddler to catch on immediately. It can be difficultat times to gage your own success because toddlers can’t alwayscommunicate exactly what they are learning. You will see their progress later on as they continue to build connections to the world around them!I compile a variety of activities in my Mommy School units, but I don’t expect todo them all. Allow your child to experience letters, numbers, colors, shapes,and other thematic elements in their own unique way. You will quickly see thatyour child thrives with some learning methods and not others. Pick and chooseactivities that work best for you and your child.I am trained as an Early Childhood Educator, and I taught First Grade for 4years. However, I am building my Mommy School units from a mother’sperspective. I am a Mom first, and a Teacher second.Remember that I have searched the web high and low seeking the very besttoddler activities. I am not the genius behind all of them—I simply gather themall in one place. Be sure to look at the credits section for more great ideas!Most of all have fun! Children will see your attitude, and will respond similarly.Enjoy discovering the world with your child.
