18 Months – 2 1/2 Years Old
Our 18 month old to 2 1/2 year old class is called the Butterfly classroom. The Curriculum is designed to allow children to learn through play while encouraging and observing their individual interests. Early preschoolers enjoy daily small group experiences. The Butterfly class has a variety of learning centers that allow children to plan their play. Block and building, imaginary play, math, use of utensils and family-style eating habit are highly promoted at this age. We understand that young learners enjoy the process of creating more than the product they create thus we encourage them to discover their creativity through a variety of small group activities.
They have the opportunity to mold, squish, splash and pour with different materials all done in a closely monitored setting. Children are given open-ended materials like boxes, paper, plastic lids and fabrics with which they combine in different ways and use to explore their creativity.
