Young Twos and ​Older Two-Year Old Preschool Classes

 

The overall goal of our 2 year old program is to help children learn how to separate comfortably from parents and take direction from other adults.

Pro-social behavior is developed through play. Students will learn to focus attention, test ideas and develop a life-long love of learning.

 

Themes are used to learn and explore areas such as: colors/shapes, visual discrimination, concepts such as opposites, positional words, and games to promote following directions.

 

Daily Plans are based on various themes and include:

  • Free Play: the child’s choice of activities, including dolls, housekeeping, vehicles, interactive toys and books.

  • Art: generally theme related and both process and product oriented to develop creativity, fine motor skills and exposure to a variety of media.

  • Circle Time: teacher directed time of reading books, reviewing shapes/colors and singing songs to promote concepts of the related themes as well as alphabet, numbers, seasons, etc.

     

  • Spiritual Growth is built through bible stories and blessings as well as learning to pray.

     

  • Outside time is provided daily, weather permitting. The multi-purpose room is available for indoor play during inclement weather.
