extended love
Our purpose is to support and reinforce the independence your 2-year-old exhibits by providing fun and challenging activities. Our professional teachers will help your child meet the developmental milestones in an environment that provides freedom with little boundaries, individual attention and praise. Each preschool classroom is designed around activity-based centers to encourage and challenge your child each and every day.
  • Gross motor play – Indoor gym, which includes rocking and riding toys, small climbing structures; fenced-in playground with large climbing structures, swings and enough space to run off a little energy
  • Dramatic play – This center helps your child make sense of their world as they use their imagination and problem-solving skills alongside their peers
  • Games and puzzles – Your 2-year-old will learn math and science concepts and develop fine motor skills by stacking, sorting, counting, putting together (and taking apart!) various objects
  • Art – From coloring with crayons to painting with watercolors, your child will learn hand-eye coordination, small muscle control and problem solving, and may even get a little messy!
  • Music and movement – Use of CD players to get our wiggles out, musical instruments and puppets
  • Sensory – Sand-and-water table, along with an assortment sensory materials
  • Language development – Includes flannel board stories, visiting our library which includes children’s books, board games, listening to books on tape or just curling up in a soft quiet space in the classroom with an age-appropriate book
A typical day in the life of your 2-year-old might include:
  • Group activities such as singing songs, learning our colors, shapes, names
  • Teacher-initiated activities such as music or art
  • Child-driven activities, which may include being in our learning centers
  • Meals, snacks and naptime to nourish and rest your child’s growing mind and body
  • Outside time
  • Potty training and self-help skills, including transitioning from diapers to either pull-ups or underwear, and learning to wash/dry our hands on our own and putting coat/shoes off and on
One of the major goals in the older ones and 1-year-old program is potty training. We are excited to be a part of helping you and your child reach this important goal. A thorough explanation and plan is included in our Parent Handbook.

3-Year-Olds

10:1 Ratio

By the time your child approaches 3 years of age, he or she is ready to learn new skills and progress through our Preschool Program. 3-year-olds have the ability to express themselves in words and ideas. This ability opens up a whole new social world.
Our skilled teachers customize weekly themes to meet the interests and needs of the children. Preschoolers will learn important “everyday” life skills such as manners, self-help skills and social interaction. Our Preschool Program features various learning centers equipped with developmentally appropriate materials to channel your child’s natural sense of curiosity into educational exploration.
Your 3-year-old will be challenged through many activities on a daily basis, such as:
  • Small motor skills – cutting, drawing, folding or scrunching of paper, tracing shapes, all of which will help promote writing skills
  • Large motor skills – balance beam, obstacle courses, Hippity Hops, scooters, trampoline, swings and climbing equipment. These activities will improve coordination and body control
  • Mathematics – rote counting and recognition of numbers, patterns, size concept (big or small), graphing, awareness of shapes, sorting
  • Dramatic play – Themed prop boxes, puppets, costumes, and role playing inspire creative and imaginative play
  • Cooking – the children learn how food is prepared and how it contributes to their health and well-being
  • Sensory – an array of media, such as sand, water, noodles, rice and bean (just to name a few) helps delight the senses and challenge the children’s minds and promote all areas of development
  • Art – Painting, coloring, gluing, cutting and an unlimited amount of materials are available to allow children to create and represent their ideas in a visual form
A typical day for your preschooler will consist of the following activities:
  • Morning Circle Time – calendar, weather, Pledge of Allegiance, Helper Chart   
  • Center time – Exploring through small groups; art, math, small and large motor, dramatic play, sensory
  • Gym or library
  • Outside time
  • Music and movement
  • Lunch and nap time
  • Story time
