Two-Three Preschool

(2-3 years)

Two-Three Preschool

This is a stage at which children begin to communicate and talk, but they cannot put their thoughts and ideas together. At age 2, children’s play is often in parallel form, with children playing next to each other but not really playing with each other. Further, children at this stage are egocentric, which means a child is not able to see another’s point of view.

At this stage, the teacher’s role is to help a child to understand and see their peers’ point of view and be able to share and play with each other. This classroom provides age-appropriate learning activities as well as time in all learning centers to engage with peers and to develop positive social interactions. At this stage, it is important that we provide a rich, engaging environment where children have the opportunity to play (as Piaget says “play is work of children”), explore, learn, share, pretend and role-play.

Kids Academy’s Two-Three Preschool Program is filled with engaging learning opportunities, peer socializing and potty training. We partner with each family to help reach the goal of potty training as each child becomes mentally and physically ready. 

Also, to help our children with their cognitive development, teachers create an environment that allows children to explore, ask questions, come with new ideas and to solve problems. To achieve this, teachers in Kids Academy are nurturing and calm when interacting with your child.

Engaging children in conversation helps them with language development. Further, reading aloud to children, child-to-child reading and single child book reading, not only help your child with the habit of reading, language, and new vocabulary, but helps with writing.

A Note from the Two-Three Preschool Teaching Team:

We work with our children to develop a structured daily classroom routine in which students take part in group activities such as morning circle time, story time, outdoor or indoor play, mealtimes and nap times. This routine gives our precious little ones a sense of security.

Our curriculum is based on the Illinois State Early Learning Standards. We also follow The Environment Rating Scale to score and create a high-quality early childhood program and to assess educational settings. The scale includes subscales such as space and furnishings, personal care routine, listening and talking, activities, interaction, program structure, and parents and staff.

In our classroom, there is great emphasis is on social, emotional, language, cognitive and critical thinking development. Here is an example of these stages of developments:

  • Social and emotional development: How children learn the skill of making friends and identifying their own feelings.
  • Language development: Talking with teachers and peers, increasing their vocabulary. 
  • Cognitive and critical thinking skills: Facilitating memory and problem-solving skills.

 

Along with group activities, we as your child’s teachers, work individually every day with each child to help meet their specific needs and goals such as writing, math and problem-solving. 

We are here to help your child to successfully advance through these developmental stages and to build positive relationships with your child. Since they spend much of their time with us in the classroom, we want to make sure that your child feels safe and loved with us through hugs. We love to take care of your precious little ones!
