2 Year Olds Program Overview
The 2 Year Olds Program is for children age 2 to 3 years and is designed to be a supportive transition from the toddler years to the preschool years.
The class focuses on supporting this age group’s tendency to ask “why” as they dig deep into their fascination with asking questions and trying to find the answers. Each day, children have the opportunity to engage in playful and hands-on experiences that support a child’s sense curiosity as they engage in sensory and art experiences, listen to stories, sing and dance, and explore the classroom environment. Through these daily experiences, the children build their fine motor skills, their cognition, and their self-concept. Every day, the children also visit our large, indoor playground where they are invited to climb, run, slide, swing, and build the gross motor skills that are central to their larger development.
We understand the importance of helping these young preschoolers develop a positive self-concept by increasing their ability to participate in self-help skills. Children in the Young Preschool class are given age-appropriate responsibilities such as beginning to take ownership over toilet mastery and restroom use, helping keep the classroom clean by putting away materials when they are finished using them, and serving themselves snack.
The young preschool program at Creative Scholars is designed to support the growth of the curiosity about their world that will help them become inquiring, empathetic, and confident individuals.
