Preschool Prep Program
Ages 2 years - 3 years
Around the age of two, children begin asserting their individuality.
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. 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.

Preschool Prep Program FAQs
What does curriculum look like for this age group?
In our preschool prep program, curriculum is centered around enhancing children's language, cognitive, and motor skills, and providing ample time for creativity during arts & crafts. Additionally, children continue practicing and are continuously exposed to counting numbers 1-20, sounding out letters in the alphabet, and begin tracing letters as well.
Does this school help with potty training?
Absolutely! Helping each child on their potty training journey is a large focus in our 2 year old program, with a heavy importance placed on making sure a consistent potty training routine is followed both at home and at school.
At what age do kids begin drinking out of normal cups at school?
Before and during our 2 year old program, our teachers encourage and teach children how to drink out of a normal 5-oz cup.
Is the food cut up into small pieces for this age group?
For our younger two year olds, if needed, food is still cut up into pieces that are easier to grasp and take small bites from as they transition to not needing food to be cut up any more.
Can I provide my own water for my child?
We are able to provide drinking tap water for children, but if you wish to provide your own water for your child, you are welcome to do so.
If my child isn't fully potty trained, will they still be able to move up to the 3 year old class?
Yes, your child will be able to move up to the 3 year old class regardless of potty training status. Our teachers in that classroom will continue helping your child get fully potty trained.
