-Social & Emotional Development
SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS KEY DURING TODDLERHOOD.
Children learn how to navigate their future interpersonal relationships from their social interactions in early childhood; providing a social atmosphere for toddlers when their language and motor skills are blossoming more than ever makes all the difference. When children play together, they learn to celebrate differences as they cooperate and collaborate - creating empathetic problem solvers. When a child’s play is guided and encouraged by their teacher, the child establishes trust, respect & confidence – essential to a lifelong love of learning.

BUILDING ON YOUR PRESCHOOLER'S "AHA!" MOMENTS
Preschool children learn through exploration. Questions abound as they discover their surroundings. They're problem solving, they're reasoning, they're testing the limits. Combine that with their never-ending imaginations, friends and all the best toys, and you have the recipe for Sonnets Academy's preschool classrooms - the best preschool in Chicago for your child to exceed developmental milestones. Your preschooler's teacher will guide individual and classroom exploration by providing activities and opportunities that build upon your child's questions and connections.

Sonnets Academy Prekindergarten classrooms provide the structured schedule that your child needs to prepare for grade school while encouraging their independence to take root. Prekindergarten is all about supporting students as they articulate their observations, thoughts & emotions; ask questions and make connections. You'll watch your child's play turn into projects with an elaborate story - their art and creative expression more realistic than ever.
Toddlerhood is the best time to begin actively promoting early literacy. Toddlers are working on progressing from using pointing to communicate to using one, two, and then eventually three word sentences. They understand simple instructions, although don’t always follow them. Language development typically takes off around 18 months, and by the time they are two, children have learned between 100-1,000 words.
It is during toddlerhood that children begin to experiment with plurals and tenses. Toddlers love singing, nursery rhymes, finger plays, and reading books. They love to color and draw with crayons and markers and progress from making random strokes to drawing a picture with deliberation where they can tell you what they drew.
Sonnets Academy transitions our early literacy promotion smoothly from toddlers to twos and preschool to prekindergarten, so that by the time your child is ready for kindergarten, they not only know some of the fundamentals of reading, phonetics, handwriting and spelling, but they have established a love of stories, books, and learning in general.
