|Early experiences in our full-day two's program provide the ground work for later development. We are dedicated to providing an interactive environment in which your terrific two year old can explore his or her world in his/her own unique way.
During the year, various topics will be explored such as farms, pets, dinosaurs, etc... Our teachers will use music, finger-plays, art, picture cards, books, and physical activities related to these topics to promote language, physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. The teachers interact with the children in a manner that communicates that each child is unique and special.
A two's day at a glimpse:
Our day starts out as early as 6:45am. Students arrive and eat a well balanced breakfast. As they finish breakfast, they have free choice time to explore their classroom and form the beginning bonds with friends and teachers. From there, the students go to chapel with Pastor or join in on Faith Circle and read the very basic stories of the bible and sing songs. The students then get a chance to play on our beautiful playground or stretch their muscles in our indoor gym. Throughout the morning the teachers provide opportunities for the students to play math, pre-reading, and fine motor games that build the foundations for future learning. Twos also have the opportunity to do two art projects a day. Vocabulary building and early literacy skills are developed in our circle times through the use of themed stories, songs, picture cards, and games. Self help skills, such as potty training, drinking from an open cup, and eating with utensils, are worked on throughout the day.
