Toddlers and classroom challenges

    We have a young toddler (17 months old) in our toddlers room who is opening all the doors. He is tall and strong for his age and can reach all the doors handles. At home, parents deal with that issue by locking the doors. Not an option in the classroom as the doors always open to the outside for safety purposes in compliance with fire rules. If you had a similar experience in your center I would love to hear from you: how to work with a 17 months old to stop that behavior?
    Thank you!
