2-3 years old

In many instances, this is the first experience the child has of being away from his/her parents. An emphasis on the importance of a peaceful environment, with the necessary nurturing and caring, is a characteristic of this program. Toddler activities and exercises recognize that children learn by doing. Taking turns, sharing, patience, and attention span are important lessons that each child learns at their own pace. Independence, coordination, and concentration are developed.
Children have daily circle time, preschool arts & crafts, stories, songs, dancing, interactive zoology, and Spanish. Activities are changed regularly in response to children’s need for variety and challenge as they grow and learn. Teachers are also working with your child on small/fine motor skills such as holding a brush, crayons/pencils, scribbling, drawing, gluing and pasting. Letters and sounds, numbers, shapes, and colors are being introduced. Children work on puzzles and love reading picture books. Children are being engaged in practical life and sensorial activities. The safe, loving, gentle atmosphere puts children and parents at ease and makes for a trusting, spontaneous transition from home to preschool. By two years of age, some children have learned how to use the toilet. However, we expect most children to be wearing diapers. Our teachers work together with parents to help with “toilet learning” and make the process fun and exciting for the children!

Our deeply engaged teachers work with parents to nurture and stimulate young children as they make their transition from the world of home to the world of preschool.
