Two-year-old’s are learning to produce language rapidly. They develop these language skills by actively participating with story books, finger plays, songs and flannel board stories. Color recognition, shapes, and counting are enhanced through these verbal activities.
Two-year-old’s thrive on exploration and creativity. They enjoy fantasy, such as pretending toys are alive or using an empty box as a car. We provide time and space (indoor and outdoor) for gross motor activities (running, jumping, throwing), as well as manipulatives (puzzles, play dough, pegboard, string beads, scribbling) for fine motor development. Self-help skills (buttoning, zippering, snapping) are encouraged and worked on as interest is shown.
The Two-year-old program continues the child’s exposure to vocabulary and familiar figures of our faith. Using bible stories, hymns, and other religious songs, children will continue to grow in their understanding of God’s love.
