Preschool 2 1/2's

The curriculum in the  2 ½ -3 years old class expands on the foundation established in the prior class. We begin to introduce more routine and structure to children’s activities and daily schedule. Your child will build vocabulary, learn functional numerical skills, and will be encouraged to use simple reasoning to explain everyday occurrences.Our daily activities continue to reinforce age-appropriate social development.

Program Highlights
Creative Curriculum

Our monthly Thematic Creative Curriculum includes Language and Literacy. Children build vocabulary and comprehend simple directions. They learn Social-Emotional engagement  - they’re encouraged to verbalize their wants and needs. We also focus on Creative Expression and teach children to play toy instruments, create multi-sensory art, and engage in pretend play. Children further comprehend basic Mathematics and learn their numbers, experiment with textures, sort by colors and build reasoning skills.We touch on Science and Social Studies and show them how to identify helpers and family members.  Children learn more Wellness through master ball handling, dexterity, and body movements. During this phase, children become increasingly in charge of their own learning.

Structured Environment

In preschool, we begin to incorporate a more structured, consistent daily schedule and work on building a sense of responsibility and independence in our students.  We provide a platform of education and curiosity upon which children can build and thrive. We encourage questions, routine, and personal achievement.  

Our program at this age embraces classroom learning experiences using hands on learning and teachable moments. There is also ongoing focus on building character skills such as respect, empathy, kindness, and independance. Our program nurtures new, exciting discoveries in literacy, math, social studies, science and the arts daily.
