Toddlers actively engage in learning through interaction with others and through exploration of their environment. At this young age we assist your child with:
- social–emotional development
- language development
- cognitive development
- motor development
Two-Year Old Program
In our two-year old program, we reinforce the independence your two-year-old exhibits by providing fun and challenging activities. Our teachers will help your child meet the key milestones of this important developmental stage by providing what they need most:
- freedom within boundaries
- individual attention
- positive reinforcement.
Three Year Old Program
Our three-year old classroom is designed to encourage your child’s growing independence and need to investigate. The curriculum is based on age-appropriate themes throughout our school year.
Our daily structure includes:
- Morning Circle time where the day’s themed activities are introduced and reviewed.
- A letter of the week is practiced with daily projects pertaining to that letter, learning the sound the letter makes, and interactive games based on each letter.
- Literacy and Language enrichment to build emerging language skills
- Music and Movement (songs, poems and rhymes) to expand your child’s vocabulary and listening skills
- Our teachers also work on fine motor skills in preparation for early writing by the end of the school year.
Preschoolers love to explore through hands-on activities. Tiny Tykes Pre-Kindergarten program combines Kindergarten-readiness activities with the best early-childhood standards to develop critical thinking skills and stimulate your child’s curiosity.
Our curriculum is designed to help your child become a part of a learning community, where they not only build skills vital to success in Kindergarten but for life-long learners.
After morning circle time, which will include the calendar, days of the week, months of the year, and the question of the day, your child will dive into the “Letter of the Week.”
Your preschooler will work on:
- identifying each letter both upper and lowercase
- the sound that each letter makes
- hand writing and creating projects that correspond with that letter.
Projects can range from three-step art projects, to story writing and “cooking” projects too!
In designated learning centers throughout our classroom, your preschooler will engage in a range of math, language and literacy, science and dramatic play activities. We strive for creative ways to keep your child’s mind stimulated and always ready & eager for learning.
- Arts and Crafts – Using their fine motor skills, each child creates daily art projects pertaining to the theme of the week.
- Movement – Whether the children are in the gym playing parachute, on their mats doing yoga or outside on our rock-climbing wall, the children strengthen their gross motor skills both in the morning and afternoon.
- Music – Children develop rhythmic and vocal skills as they engage in more independent music making activities that include moving to music, musical games, rhythmic activities, and playing small percussion instruments.
- Technology Time – Technology is constantly evolving, which is why we give the children a 20-minute period in the day to learn and play educational games in our iPad center.
