Toddlers & Two Year Age Group

The second year of a child's life are ones of phenomenal growth.  All of the senses are brought into full play.  Children are continuously investigating their environment by observing, touching, listening, smelling and tasting.


Each day marks the beginning of a new adventure for two year olds.  They are receptive to any sensory stimulation found in their surroundings.  Activities that foster positive growth and development are important in providing a nurturing environment during these formative years.  In addition to a child's surroundings, there are several other basic conditions which contribute to the developmental processes in two year olds.  Among these are:


  • Tender loving care
  • Allowing a child time to be an observer before becoming a participant.
  • Freedom to repeat activities - repetition is part of the learning process.
  • Opportunity to work independently without adult assistance unless it is sought.
  • Encouragement when performing tasks; knowing that the execution of any job is more important than the final product.

Beginning with our two year old class


We use a research based, developmentally appropriate program called "Early Start". Each month our program provides new activities in math, science, reading readiness, colors, shapes, alphabetical letters and sounds, pre-writing, thinking skills and discussions.  To enhance these activities we provide poems, finger plays, songs, stories, games, movement, physical activities, and crafts. Each day's activities are designed to involve children in the learning process both mentally and physically.


Included in our program are innovative, high-interest activities which are designed to keep children eager, busy, and ready to learn.  To the adult they may seem like fun and games but to the child these activities are work.  As the well-known saying goes; "Play is a child's work, so let the fun begin!"


Our program includes the following:

  • Reading Readiness Skills
  • Drama, Guided Discussion
  • Puppets, Hats, 3-D projects
  • Original Stories, Rhymes, Games, Songs & Fingerplays
