Preschool Program Beginner (2.5 years)
Our educators are aware that they are in a unique position to help young children learn to trust others and develop secure attachments with the important people in their lives. Our curriculum for this age group helps build relationships with children by showing how to create meaningful daily routines and experiences that respond to individual children’s strengths and interests.
This age group thrives on new experiences and we fulfill this need by providing care, directions, and games that allow them to explore the world without stress or pressure. We aim to work with each child as an individual and ensure that each day is a fun-filled adventure.
- Addresses language, literacy, math, and science. Because very young children are already exploring ideas and developing important skills that become the building blocks for future learning.
- Links curriculum and assessment to allow teachers to be intentional about the experiences they offer twos, while retaining the flexibility to be responsive to the changing needs and abilities of young children.
- Same organizational structure as the curriculum for our preschool age to create continuity for our programs.
- Teachers thoughtfully observe children, and use what they learn to be responsive to children’s interests and needs.
- Ongoing communication between parents and teachers to keep you informed about your child’s day.
Our curriculum identifies goals in all areas of development:
- Social: To help children feel comfortable in school, trust their new environment, make friends, and feel they are a part of the group.
- Emotional: To help children experience pride and self- confidence, develop independence and self-control, and have a positive attitude toward life.
- Cognitive: To help children become confident learners by letting them try out their own ideas and experience success, and by helping them acquire learning skills such as the ability to solve problems, ask questions, and use words to describe their ideas, observations, and feelings.
- Physical: To help children increase their large and small muscle skills and feel confident about what their bodies can do.
