24 - 36 Months
This Program serves students whom are 24 to 36 months of age.
This program is a 1:10 Teacher Child Ratio in a bright spacious classroom with windows looking out to our beautiful backyard. Each child in this program is given the time and space to develop and build healthy relationships in a cohesive semi-structured learning environment. This classroom provides students with child initiated activities as well as teacher directed activities throughout the day. The Get Set for School Curriculum is introduced in this program and will set the foundation for developing language and listening skills, fine motor strength and eventually an understanding of shapes, colors, and the alphabet.
The morning routine begins at 9:00 AM with open play, art and sensory exploration. A gentle transition into the first morning circle follows and includes, songs, stories and a time for large group activities. AM Snack along with potty breaks for changing diapers and or potty training (when ready) is from approximately 10:00-10:30 AM. Outside time in our beautiful backyard gives the students ample areas to play. Covered play areas with a large grassy area, sandbox, swings, a track for riding bikes and push cars amongst other outdoor activities all allow for children to run, play, climb and get their wiggles out. A second circle time along with individual & group activities, art, music, story time, and classroom exploration leads into lunch time at 12:00 PM. We offer Half Day Programs until 12:30 PM and Full Day Programs until 6:00 PM. You may choose from 2 days a week to 5 days a week. Set schedules are critical to balance teacher/child ratios. The Full Day Program allows for a quiet nap time beginning at 1:00 PM until approximately 3:00 PM. From 3:00-6:00, we offer an afternoon snack, indoor/outdoor activities, and an afternoon circle time until we close for the evening. There is no need to be potty trained in the Transitional Two’s Program although students moving up in the fall will begin this process in this class if they haven’t already.
