TODDLER 1 ROOMS - Ages approx. 1 year to 2 years
Early language and literacy skills are learned best through everyday moments with your child—reading books, talking, laughing and playing together. Children learn a language when you talk to them and they communicate back to you, and by hearing stories read and songs sung aloud. Children also learn by using their senses. They explore and discover by touching and mouthing objects, hearing voices and music, and seeing the colorful, fascinating wonder all around them. But the most important part of your child’s early learning experiences is you. It is through interactions and experiences with loved and trusted adults that babies begin to make sense of the world
TODDLER 2 ROOM - Ages 2 years to 2.5 years
So much is happening as your child begins his or her second year! She may be participating in the child care program and building a relationship with his or her teacher. He or she is probably making new friends. He/She is also showing you how capable and independent he/she is by doing lots of things for himself/ herself, like learning to put a jacket on or help with tasks like setting the table. School is about getting experience with becoming part of a group. Kids should be introduced to social skills, sharing, taking turns, making friends, and developing language. That said there are plenty more the littlest preschoolers can learn.
PRESCHOOL 1 ROOM - Ages 2.5 years to 3.5 years
This is a class that helps tots transition into an actual preschool setting. Preschool 1 will have circle time, recognition of letters and numbers activities, snack time and playtime. Some of the units we cover are counting, grouping, shapes, letters in the alphabet, colors, identifying objects, baking, understanding the weather patterns, and much more. Students will practice skills in small group settings and have some one on one time with the teachers. Toddler 3’s goal in this classroom is to create a positive, constructive, and welcoming environment for all of our students.
PRESCHOOL 2 ROOM
This is a fun, ongoing doorway of discovery preschool program that not only helps enhance your child’s physical, emotional, social and academic growth, but also helps prepare them for Prekindergarten. A hallmark of the transition from 2 to 3 is the discovery of the world of friends. Three-year-olds love being with each other now, and caregivers should give them plenty of time for unstructured, imaginative play, which helps them develop language skills.
In our Pre-K rooms, children will be engaged in activities that will prepare them in many ways for the kindergarten year which follows. Physically the children continue with their gross motor development in their daily outdoor play, gym time, weekly gymnastics and swim lessons, and dancing. Fine motor development continues with regular activities which include drawing, painting, cutting, puzzles, and writing activities.We lay the foundation for later skills in math by counting, measuring, weighing, cooking and exploring relative values.
