18 to 24 Months
Children who are 2 to 3 years old are opening thier eyes to the larger world around them. They want to explore, take things apart and put them back together. They want to be independent in everything they do. Our teachers help them to accomplish the goals of being inventors, discovers, dreamers, artists and having fun. The teachers do this by planning appropriate activities in the following areas:
Motor skills development -- outdoor games, dancing, movement
Language development -- recognizing and forming letters, story time, speech
Sensory development -- textures, understanding the senses, descriptive activites
Imaginative development -- arts and crafts, dramatic play, storytelling
Social development -- large and small group activities, sharing, politeness
These things are all part of the ABEKA curriculum where the teacher facilitates the childs learning. Through out the year they will learn about God's world while developing language skills with the help of many animal friends. He will learn to count from 1-25 and recognize numbers 1-10. Coloring, painting, and gluing will ehlp develop manual skills. Stories, poetry, and music will aid in the development of comprehension, language, and thinking skills.
At meal times our 2 year olds eat family stlye and learn how to set the table and serve themselves.
Once a week your child will participate in Stretch-n-grow. A program that promotes health and fitness.
