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.
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.
