Two-Year-Old Daycare

Creating a Love of Learning

Toddler with teacher

Two-year-olds are filled with energy and curiosity about the world and are developing a sense of increasing independence—making the twos terrific, not terrible!

At La Petite Academy, the child care curriculum focuses on our 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 daycare 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.

La Petite Academy’s 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: Your 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 or 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 unique curriculum offers 26 themed units to keep your two-year-old engaged in a progression of learning. The child care program at La Petite Academy also 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 naptimes 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 accredited two-year-old daycare program also abides by state-mandated teacher-to-child ratios. And, 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.
