Two Year Olds
Two year old children are Imagineers. Energy, independence, and curiosity about the world fill their souls and minds. Their language skills and vocabulary continues to develop dramatically. They are developing in many areas rapidly and are eager for attention and learning. Our program highlights language development to help children strengthen and increase vocabularies and character. We conduct group activities to complement children’s growth development through social skills such as cooperation, sharing, and taking turns. Our classroom also focuses on dramatic plays, games, and hands-on activities. Our teachers work in fostering children’s independence, self-esteem, and sense of accomplishment. We provide them the necessary resources and guidance to explore and learn in a comfortable and safe environment. We will keep you updated on your children’s progress through daily reports.
