Young Preschool

Our young preschool classroom is for children 30m (2.5yrs) to 3 years old. In our young preschool classroom children are continuing to strengthen their skills of independence. We encourage them to communicate their needs with words, to interact with friends, they are introduced to shapes, colors, alphabet, simple letter recognition and counting. Our daily routines include activities such as art, sensory experiences, gross motor activities, outdoor play, story time, and small circle time. Children learn from interacting with one another and watching their friends. Socialization is very important for this age level.

This class is all about transitioning from diapers to using the potty along with many other important developmental milestones. Children will work on increasing language, independence, social skills, self-help and routines. Our play-based environment encourages experimentation and creativity. Our classroom is equipped with developmentally appropriate materials that challenge children’s ability and encourages them to explore.

The caregiver’s role in a play-based environment is the play partner. The child and caregiver work together to make plans and determine what activities will be available. The caregiver is available to children to help resolve problems and redirect play when needed.
