2-3 Year Olds
2-3 year olds discover their world on a physical level. Therefore, they are active explorers and eager to try new things and use materials in different ways. In the 2's and 3's Program, with patience and respect, our teachers redirect the children to help guide them toward controlling their impulses and behaviors. Our Teachers utilize the IL Early Leaning Guidelines and start to incorporate the IL Early Learning and Development Standards. This class focuses on Colors and Shapes, Letter recognition, and Number recognition. By using weekly themes our teachers are able to incorporate learning standards into each lesson. The classroom is set up into different learning centers each with its own set of developmental learning standards. The weekly theme is brought into each center. The teachers also screenchildren to ensure developmental milestones are being met.
