Most 2-year-olds are filled with energy and an innate curiosity about the world around them. They’re also quickly developing their sense of independence. We offer opportunities for them to explore this growing individuality.
In this program, children are provided with:
This active classroom environment engages bodies, hands, minds, and imaginations with abundant opportunities to move, explore, and discover new experiences, while forming a foundation for later learning. Children are immersed in active experiences through these six classroom areas.
A safe space to climb, jump, dance, and develop gross-motor skills.
This cozy, inviting area provides plenty of books, puppets, comfortable seating, and writing materials.
Designed for investigation and expression, this area offers a variety of art supplies, observation tools, and sensory materials (water, sand, fabric, etc.).
This is an interactive center where children work and play together with homelike materials, such as play food, dress-up clothes, baby dolls, and housekeeping items.
Children experiment and try new ways of doing things, while working with their hands, using blocks, trucks, puzzles, and more.
A safe, quiet place in the classroom for children to relax by themselves and spend some quality alone time, as needed.
Learning experiences in this classroom address the evolving developmental needs of this increasingly mobile age group, while milestone development continues to be guided by our Learn from the Start™ curriculum. We also remain focused on these five main developmental areas.
