TODDLER PROGRAM (12 MONTHS – 24 MONTHS)
The transition to our toddler room is very exciting! At this stage children are developing their language skills greatly but not always through words. Our teachers encourage exploration of language through songs, book, and nursery rhymes. During this stage we also introduce your child to different visual stimulations using colors, shapes, sorting objects, mixing colors and manipulative play.
TWO’S PROGRAM (24 MONTHS – 36 MONTHS)
As your child enters our two year old program they are highly curious and love to explore independently. During this stage of development children are developing an understanding of what they want but are still unaware of the needs of other children. In this classroom our teachers will help your child understand the feelings of others, practice turn taking, patience and other important social skills. Your child will be introduced to new concepts to help them further their language skills through creative play such as role playing, finger puppets, art activities, music instruments and much more!
PRESCHOOL PROGRAM (36 MONTHS +)
At this stage children start to develop their logical reasoning skills as they play; they are able to sort, identify, and classify objects . During this stage they also begin to master letter and number recognition, develop a healthy imagination, brainstorm problem-solving solutions and being to apply already mastered learning skills to new concepts. During this age children start making meaningful relationships with their peers and it is very important for your child to have the opportunity to socialize with other children and form friendships. Our teachers are constantly introducing your child to stimulating and fun activities in individual and group projects to provide great opportunities for educational development and social growth.
