                                             Class: _________

    Younger toddlers include children 12-23 months of age; older toddlers are children 24-30
months of age. The requirements for how often and when art activities and materials are offered
   to toddlers vary depending on the children’s ages. Since younger toddlers have less skill in
controlling art materials, and often prefer to eat them, which can result in conflict with staff, this
indicator requires that some art is only offered to them at least three times a week. The time it is
 offered during the day can vary from one day to the next throughout the week, but credit cannot
          be given if it is offered three different times during only one day of the week.
