Early Preschool Classroom

24 months- 3 years

Capacity:10

Our nurturing environment provides a structure that allows the students to grow and learn while feeling safe and comfortable. Students are given daily opportunities to explore and learn through age-appropriate open-ended materials and projects. Children in the Toddler Classroom are encouraged to try to use their words to express their needs and wants. The activities in the Toddler Classroom are developed to create learning experiences and social experiences through play, projects, and activities. Self-help skills such as eating skills, potty training, hand washing, and independently cleaning up are among the skills taught in this room. A daily sheet is sent home to let parents know when the child was changed throughout the day, what they ate, and how long they slept.
