Preschoolers: 2 – 3 years old
At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. As two-year-olds begin to exert their independence, our Preschool program opens their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our balanced approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they’ll need as they continue on to preschool.
PLEASE NOTE: While personal-care activities, such as hand washing and diapering, are scheduled throughout the day, these will also occur outside of the schedule to meet individual children’s needs.
Your two-year-old will learn age-appropriate social, emotional, physical, and intellectual skills, as well as Christian values appropriate for their age.
