PRESCHOOL 2 YEAR OLD
Children learn vital social skills and how to play cooperatively with others. Communication and expressing feelings are encouraged. Children learn to follow simple directions, and begin to participate in simple routines.
Letters and sounds are introduced through songs, games, and puppet play. Our interactive phonics program provides children with a kinesthetic learning experience. Children sing songs, recite nursery rhymes and poems. Learning to listen to and participate in stories are skills practiced daily. Oral language development is highly emphasized in our 2-year-old classroom.
Children will have ample opportunity for creative artistic expression every day. Open easel painting is offered daily in the preschool classrooms. Art is viewed as a process rather than a product, and creativity and fun are key elements in our preschool art program.
Pre-math skills are introduced with a focus on colors, shapes, numbers, classifying, matching, and sorting.
Our hands-on-science program provides a wonderful multi- sensory experience. Children are introduced to the beautiful physical world surrounding them.
Gross motor and fine motor movement activities occur daily. Children have ample opportunity for unstructured outdoor play each and every day.
Foreign languages such as French, Spanish, and Mandarin are introduced through games, songs, and stories by our foreign language specialty teachers.
Children participate in our wonderful Music and Movement program led by our specialty dance and music instructor.
Children have ample opportunity for hands-on practice with technology as each classroom is equipped with iPads. iPads in the classroom have the ability to challenge the needs of a variety of students with different capabilities.
