Children are truly gaining independence at this age, and wanting to do things on their own. We are excited to help your child achieve, challenge themselves, and explore.
in these classrooms, we reach towards developmental milestones such as...
- Introducing the routine of trying on the potty, and potty training as children show interest
- Social skills, such as establishing friendships, keeping friends and materials safe by maintaining boundaries, and patience
- Continue to build on emotional identification and conflict resolution skills
- Mindfulness through meditation, breathing exercises, and classroom yoga practice
- Understanding other friends may have different feelings about the same situation
- Logic skills, such as following directions, taking responsibility for our actions, and teamwork
- Language development through rhyme, rhythm, songs, and stories
- Practical skills such as putting own lunch boxes away, washing hands before/after meals, dressing for outdoor time
- Fine motor skills through new art materials being introduced
- Gross motor development through indoor/outdoor play spaces
- Expressing our needs and wants to peers and teachers using kind, respectful speech
- Exploring, Experimenting, Engaging!
