Preschool

Young 2 & Pre K 2

We offer two separate classrooms for our 2 year olds that allow us to provide an ideal environment for our younger and older 2’s. This year of life brings major developmental changes and we feel separating younger 2’s from older 2’s offers every child the best experience.

Our Young 2’s class is for kids whose birthdays are in the late spring or summer months. Students begin educational use of mini Ipads and weekly participation in Spanish language classes. Our teachers place a special emphasis on social interaction and potty training skills while encouraging advanced verbal skills.

 

Our older 2’s are placed in our Pre K 2’s class. Students work on refined fine motor skills (correctly holding a pencil, scissors, and manipulating play doh), social skills, trying to complete potty training. Emphasis on verbal communication skills (sentence building) and interactive conversation. Following simple instructions. Focus on cognitive learning. Learning numbers 1-10 and alphabet

 

In addition to these instructional objectives our students also participate weekly in Spanish lessons, music lessons, and education use of mini Ipads.
