2.5 Year Olds
For many two-and-a-half-year-olds, beginning preschool can be a very scary and or unsettling time. We/At LEAP we acknowledge this and embrace the fact that this is a big deal in their young world. To help overcome the unfamiliarity of school we provide a welcoming and nurturing environment. Children will learn how to separate more easily from their caregiver, adjust to new situations, begin to share, and learn how to take turns, follow basic classroom rules and routines and most of all develop independence while gaining confidence.
Children will be exposed to a variety of hands on developmentally appropriate activities that will encourage them to explore and learn at their own pace. Teachers will monitor and assess the children’s progress in the following areas: Language Skills, Motor Skills, Cognitive, Preschool skills, and Social/Emotional development. Two and half year olds participate in Yoga and All School Sing with musician Lou Gallo. There are visits from members of the community, including: The Fire Department and Dentist.
