For a two year old child the world can seem like a pretty big and even a scary place. That is why our teachers focus on making this program and the environment a very loving and caring one. We strive to create a low stress environment capable of promoting positive growth and development. In the areas of cognitive and language development, the children are encouraged to develop self-awareness such as being able to recognize themselves in photographs and point to their own name.
Our two year olds work on verbalizing their needs, following directions and beginning to do for themselves. As part of our two year old program, your child will learn Letters, Numbers, colors and shapes as well as participate in art and music activities. Consistency, caring and patience are a very important part of the curriculum.
Motor skills are also very important at this stage of a child’s development. As part of your two year olds curriculum, time is spent outside helping the children to develop skills such as throwing and catching, safely jumping forward and backward, climbing and pedaling. Inside activities stress developing fine motor skills such as pouring liquids, using scissors and stringing beads.
