Toddler/Young 2: 10 months (Walking)- Young 2 years
In the Toddler/Young 2s Classroom, children experience an early introduction to routines and structures with some flexibility for each child’s development and readiness. Routine and structure are needed to factor into a toddler’s sense of security and stability. Our students under the care of a loving and godly staff are nurtured throughout the day while engaging in meaningful age appropriate developmental learning tools and activities.
Daily activities begin with prayer, pledges, worship songs, and a Bible story. Academic and developmental goals include awareness of letters and phonics, shapes, numbers from 0-10, colors, social interactions, and responsiveness to one-word commands.
Our students also engage in age appropriate activities that enhance development of Fine Motor Skills for pre-writing skills.
Diaper changes, snacks and lunch time, rest time, and indoor and outdoor playtime are all part of Toddlers/Young 2s daily activities at JCPA. Our Toddlers/Young 2s have their playground located in proximity to the back of their classroom.
