Two-year-olds are constantly in motion and use their natural curiosity for hands-on discovery. Two’s need a rich learning environment that develops their cognitive skills and expands their vocabulary, by this stage in their development, routines and schedules become a big part of the child’s day which promotes stability and security.
Potty training is a familiar theme with parents of a 2 year old. With this in mind, the PBCA staff will partner with the parents to help reinforce efforts being taken at home to potty train their child. Keeping in mind that one of the criteria to enter the 3 year old program is to be 100% potty-trained.
The Creative Curriculum serves as the framework for conducting the PBCA 2 year old program. Learning Environment Centers are introduced in the 2 year old classroom and include: bible time, circle time, dramatic play, art center, blocks, fine motor skills, music, and book/literacy area. Every child will participate in activities that are socially, physically, intellectually and psychologically age appropriate. Children learn by doing and through exploration and play. Our skilled teachers are adept at turning play time into learning activities. New items are periodically introduced to facilitate a better understanding of the classroom’s weekly focus.
