Welcome to the 2 Year Old Program

Age 24 – 35 months

We believe in creating many life long, positive memories in our classroom. This classroom is filled with children at that age who are constantly seeking attention and praise daily. This is the room where they see themselves as independent individuals who love having all eyes on them! Yes, the two year old stage can be challenging, but our classroom is especially created for children whom we adore. From circle time to outside play to toilet training, it all happens in here. We enjoy caring for your child on a daily basis and look forward to getting to know your family. Below is an overview of what to expect from the Under the Sea classroom.

Self-help Skills:
A big part of being two years old is becoming independent. It is a very confusing time for the child and our Teachers are here to help make the transition smoother. Here are a few things we will be encouraging your child to do on their own. We would greatly appreciate you to do the same as much as possible.

» Pulling up and down their pants
» Putting on and taking off their coat
» Putting on and taking off their shoes
» Using fork/spoon
» Drinking from a cup without a lid
» Using their words

Potty Training:
When your child is about 2 ½ years old we will be encouraging them to use the toilet. They will probably have started to show signs of readiness. Then we will begin teaching them the skills they will need to toilet train. Information will be available at any given time we feel the child is ready!

Expressive Art:
When the children are expressing themselves through art they tend to be messy. We will do our best to keep them clean by providing smocks and washing them off right away. There are going to be times when they will still have art evidence from their creative side when you come to pick-up. Please keep in mind they are exploring and having fun.

Academics:
We are not just going to be coloring and painting. We believe your child can begin their education right here in our classroom! We will encourage the children to learn to identify as much as possible. There will be many activities that will go on in the classroom. Many activities include being read to daily, learning new songs, learning from flashcards, simple sign and Spanish, practicing fine motor skills, and much, much more. Along with that they will get to explore with sensory activities such as water, textures, shaving cream, goop, and much more!
