EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM – 2 1/2 YEAR OLD

Phoenix Preschool has adopted the latest curriculums to create a unique learning program for our youngest students. We understand the importance of a child’s self-discovery, social growth and self-sufficiency. While all of these are important, our biggest job at this age is to instill a sense of confidence through the use of positive reinforcement and age appropriate activities.

Child-Focused Lesson Plans

When planning we take our students into consideration, understanding not two child is alike. The lesson plan is planned with our students’ abilities; it may require challenging some students, while scaling it back to reach others.

Creative learning, Fun Environment

Creativity is the key at this stage in order for learning to take place. We ensure the lesson plan contains fun hands-on activities for exploring and discovery. Children are not just left to play, during Language Arts; Reading, and Math, play is with a purpose of learning. Making learning fun is at the core of our program. Each day, your child selects activities and materials to explore and discover in an imaginative and creative way.

Discovery

Our program is always open for your child’s imaginary, which includes, playing along with their teachers utilizing colorful blocks and puzzles. Students also get to unleash their creativities thru art and story telling.

Self-help Skills

Your toddler practices hand washing, putting on a coat, use of a fork or spoon when eating, picking up toys and sharing with friends; all in a safe and nurturing childcare setting.
