2 YEARS - 3 YEARS
Around the age of two, children begin asserting their individuality. They are eager to learn and showcase an enthusiasm to explore. Our preschool teachers provide ample opportunities for language and cognitive learning through exploration, and promote social and emotional development through group games and free choice activities.
2-3 YEARS CURRICULUM
Language skills for this age group include following spoken directions like "get your shoes" or "sit down for circle time", answering "yes' or "no" in response to simple questions, and speaking 50-300 words with vocabulary to describe feelings, thoughts, and desires.
Our teachers begin to encourage cognitive skills like problem-solving with this age group, by using children's experiences and observations and guiding them towards different ways of achieving the desired goal. Children begin asserting their independence and developing preferences based on past experiences, and rely on routine and ritual to make sense of their environment and interactions with other people.
SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING
Any parent of a two-year-old knows that at this age, children learn to say "no". Our teachers know how important it is to let young toddlers explore their independence and social interactions while also maintaining a watchful eye. Toddlers begin expressing frustration and letting off steam by screaming and thrashing, and it is our job to help them navigate these strong emotions and begin to express them with appropriate vocabulary.
