Early Preschool (2 Years)

Creating a Love of Learning

Two-year old's are filled with energy and curiosity about the world and are developing a sense of increasing independence -- making the twos terrific, not terrible! At Just Like Home, our curriculum focuses on the Whole Child Education philosophy, which is designed to support and reinforce the independence your two-year-old exhibits by providing fun and challenging activities.

Engaging Your Two-Year-Old's Natural Curiosity

Our highly trained teachers help your child meet the key milestones of this important developmental stage in a childcare environment that provides what they need most -- safety, freedom within boundaries, individual attention, enrichment and praise. Each classroom is designed with distinct Learning Centers where your child will participate in a range of stimulating experiences.


Learning Centers

  • Blocks: Your child will develop emotionally, socially, cognitively and physically by using a variety of building materials to turn imagination into real-life creation.

  • Dramatic Play: This interest center helps your child make sense of their world as they use their imagination and problem-solving abilities.

  • Games & Puzzles: Tour two-year-old will learn math and science concepts and develop fine motor skills by stacking, sorting, counting, putting together (and taking apart!) various objects.

  • Creative Arts: Through painting, sculpture and drawing, your child will learn eye-hand coordination, small muscle control and problem solving.

  • Water & Sand: Sensory experiences will provide your child with emotional outlets as well as a beginning knowledge of math and science concepts.

  • Book & Storytelling: Exploring books and stories promotes a life-long love of literature and language.


Your Two-Year-Old's Day

Our program supports the toilet training process and helps create a plan that is consistent, positive and manageable -- at home and school. In addition to standard care and play time, the typical daily structure for your two-year-old might include:

  • Two large group times engaging children in story, song and discussion about theme-related topics.

  • Discovery time offering both teacher and self directed opportunities to explore the Learning Centers.

  • A snuggly story time.

  • Lunch and nap times to nourish and rest your child's growing mind and body.

  • Outdoor play at least twice daily to burn off energy and develop motor skills.

Our two-year-old program abides by state-mandated teacher-to-child ratios. You will receive a daily communication detailing the care and activities of the day, so you can be confident we've provided a range of experiences designed to promote all aspects of your two-year-old's development.
