Tot Group is for all children of all abilities- every child (and adult) benefits from sensory experiences, fine motor activities, group participation, and motor planning.

Here's just a small sampling of some of the tot group activities….

A day with tractors and black paint- making tracks in the paint, exploring the paint in every sense of the word!

The focus of tot group is providing activities that help children with sensory processing, tactile discrimination, fine motor skills, and motor planning. Each tot group has a variety of stations and process art activities. We meet together for a circle time so these kiddos, 18 months- 3, can work on building their attending skills while we read a story, share a snack, and identify names in print as we see who is here at tot group! After snack, we do a group gross motor activity such as an obstacle course or game working on balance, over and under, crawling, and finding what occupational therapists like to call the, “just right challenge!”

Reluctant at first, with encouragement and repetition, the pool of packing peanuts was thoroughly enjoyed!

During tot group, we also gather for a gross motor group activity to work on turn taking, sharing, waiting our turn, and motor planning.

 

Melting ice by transferring warm water with pipettes, scooping salt, and pouring, the kids worked on wrist mobility, finger strength, and motor planning as they figured out how to use the pipettes.
