Welcome To The

Guppies Class

(2’s class)

We are excited to offer a drop-off preschool program for two-year-old’s. Our basic goal for toddlers is to provide developmentally appropriate activities, which encourage spiritual, social, emotional, physical and language development.

In the classroom, we use lots of praise, choices and love to create an environment conducive to learning and exploring. There are ample opportunities for solitary and parallel play, which ultimately leads to successful cooperative play. We focus on large and small muscle development through many different activities. Our classroom is designed for our young friends to always be moving and exploring, and be ready for active play. Additionally, we offer activity centers, sensory activities, fine motor building skill activities, housekeeping fun, art, book corner “reading”, blocks and cars. Outdoor play is also offered daily so these little ones can run, get fresh air, explore climbing, throwing balls and learning to ride tricycles!
