Two year old children are becoming more independent, they often want to do things “all by myself”. They are gaining expressive language. They wish to play with friends and engage in parallel play (I have a ball – you have a ball and we play with our balls next to each other). Developmentally young children thrive in an environment where they know they are safe and loved. Our first focus is to bond with your child and make certain that they feel secure. Our Two Year program provides a safe, gentle, exploratory, language-rich environment for your child to discover and learn in.

Three year olds are gaining physical strength and stability. They are developing a sense of humor and are asking many questions. They are enjoying creative activities and will spend more time at the art center. They love to listen to stories and will pretend to be “the story teller”. Our three year old program provides a rich, hands-on learning experience where your child will ask to come to school even on Saturdays! Each child’s needs and joys are considered as the teachers plan a learning environment rich in activities, stories, play and social coaching.

Four year olds love imaginative play. They are always asking why and they enjoy talking about everything! They are curious and want to figure out the world. They also are beginning to form stronger friendships and to play cooperatively (assigning roles to each other – I am the mom and you are the dad). The fun and learning continue in the 4 year old program. The class is busy building upon their language arts, math, science, creative arts, and social skill concepts in a hands-on, engaging environment.
