Two Year Old Classes
Our classrooms provide a safe and fun learning environment that allows our Preschoolers to explore and create as they prepare for elementary school.
ABOUT THIS CLASS
The Two Year Old classes offer children their first preschool experience. The Purple room provides a loving, nurturing environment where learning is developmentally appropriate and great fun. Our teacher-child ratio is 3 to 13 which allows us the time to give that much deserved one-on-one attention. Our curriculum is well thought out and implemented, yet we still have the ability to be flexible - changing direction to meet the needs of your little one.
Our day starts with plenty of time to play and explore the classroom. Your child might choose to paint, play in the pretend kitchen, build with blocks, engage with our assortment of vehicles, discover our freshly made play dough, or create a masterpiece at our free art table. The choice is theirs.
Since our little ones are away from home for perhaps the first time, we give plenty of hugs. However, we also work hard to foster independence. We don't do anything for the children that they can do for themselves. "That's your job" is often the saying of the day!
Our environment is loving but also challenging. At our circle time, our theme-based curriculum is presented in an engaging way. We begin with prayer and songs. Circle time will find us learning the numbers 1 - 5, shapes and colors. Each week the children enjoy a Bible lesson taught in an age appropriate way, stressing how much they are loved by God.
Learning happens in large and small groups as well as one-on-one. Our theme-based art projects are multipurpose. They facilitate creativity while serving an educational purpose as well.
A morning in the Purple room includes an engaging circle time, exploring art in a theme-based project and expending our vast amount of energy on our Purple room only playground. We define and develop our fine motor skills by using our pincher fingers to roll and squeeze play dough, by using tongs to pick up small objects, by tearing paper, or by stringing beads. We introduce the correct use of scissors, starting with plastic scissors for the play dough and grow into the use of safety scissors. It is important to move our growing bodies so our gross motor time might involve dancing, tossing bean bags, or crawling through a tunnel.
We love making music so we experiment with a variety of instruments. And we love to sing. It won't take long before your little one is teaching you all the songs we sing. A song book of lyrics will make its way home so that you will be able to participate in all our tunes at home.
Our desire is to partner with our families. We believe in building a bridge between home and school. The stronger that bridge is built the more naturally the learning flows. With a strong foundation of love and warmth coupled with a challenging curriculum the Purple room will provide your little one with a wonderful start.
