2 YEAR OLDS
Our 2’s program is focused on providing a fun, safe, and positive initial learning experience. It is a year of immense growth socially, with enhanced language development so the children can verbalize their thoughts, and advocate for their wants and needs. The curriculum is based on the school’s philosophy of ‘learning through play.’ Our goal is to create a friendly, social atmosphere where children’s feelings of self-understanding and self-confidence are developed, as well as respect and consideration for others. In addition, the students will learn all about nature, seasons, weather, and animals as they discover colors, shapes, letters, and numbers. As active learners they dance, sing, and paint the days away.
3 YEAR OLDS
Our 3’s program builds on our school philosophy of ‘play based learning.’ The children continue to develop their language skills, increasing vocabulary as they read stories, and learn new songs and poems. Their social development is strengthened as they now are beginning to play ‘with’ one another and not just alongside one another. They must listen, follow simple directions and learn how socialize and be part of a ‘group’. Their sense of play has expanded... imaginary play grows as they gain confidence. Independence and conflict solving follow. Letter and number recognition begins. They are able to complete simple projects. It is a wonderful year of social and emotional growth!
4 YEAR OLDS
Our 4’s program promotes self-confidence and self-awareness in the children as they navigate through social situations and daily exposure to fun-filled, pre-academic activities. In our multi-sensory lessons the children are exposed to letter recognition and phonemic awareness, basic math concepts and scientific explorations, as they develop their fine and gross motor skills. We strive to engage the children playfully as they make meaningful connections incorporating hands-on discovery, movement, song, dramatic play, sensory exploration and literature. We foster a creative, happy and productive environment in which the children hopefully develop a love of school and of learning.
