Program Descriptions

2-year-old class (Tuesday and Thursday)
Our 2 year old program is designed for the children to explore and discover through play and a variety of group activities.  The children will develop their social and emotional skills through group-play (sharing, turn taking, problem solving) and movement activities (following directions).  The children will also be introduced to monthly themes through simple art activities, music (songs and finger plays), and literacy (story-time).  These activities will also help the children develop their motor (small and large) and cognitive skills (pre-literacy skills).   Children in this program do not need to be potty trained.  We will help the children gain self-help skills as they learn to become more independent in the classroom.  Children in this class are to be 2 years and 7 months as of September 1st.
3-year-old classes (3 day)
Primary importance is given to emotional development (becoming independent, usually happy, and not excessively shy or aggressive) and social development (willing to share and take turns, participating in group activities at free-play time and at structured time).  Learning to follow directions and be attentive as a part of a large group is also important.  The class is divided into smaller groups of 8-9 children; and games, crafts, puppets, role playing and visual aids are used to promote auditory and visual discrimination skills, problem solving, fine motor skills (using pencils, crayons, scissors, etc.) and gross motor skills (large muscle development).
3-year-old class (Tuesday-Thursday)
Program is similar to 3 year old (3 day) description with fewer activities, and moving from room to room at playtime is done in groups, not independently.
4-year-old classes (3 day)
Children work on all above skills in a more involved way.  Stories, craft projects, games, songs, etc., are more challenging.  Four-year-olds use a weekly activity paper, Funday, to develop imagination, problem solving, language, and skills.  Some simple ditto papers are done in classes together.  Beginning in January, the 4-year-olds do kindergarten readiness activities, informally working with alphabet, numbers, consonant sounds and rhyming sounds in game-type activities.
4-year-old class (5 day)
This is an extension of the three-day program.  Children receive more individual attention with skill development, additional projects and field trips, and an opportunity for independent exploration in many areas.
