One of the most famous remarks ever said to new parents is, “Just wait until your child hits his/her ‘terrible twos, you’ll be in for a rude awakening then.’” You begin to think to yourself, “Impossible. How can it get any worse than this?” Well, there’s some truth to that statement, however, have no fear–you’ll get through this.
Two Year Old Preschool Curriculum
Once your child hits that two-year-old mark, a lot of changes take place. This is the year where they begin to walk more, talk more, and become a little bit more fussy, opinionated and independent. This is also the year where your child is old enough to start preschool, and boy, can that be heart-wrenching. Where did the time go? How are they already starting school?
At Paradigm Care & Enrichment Center, our two-year-old curriculum is a lot different than our three-year-old and four-year-old preschool curriculum. In fact, at our daycare center, our 2-2 ½-year-olds (young bridgers) are separated from our 2 ½-3-year-olds (old bridgers) because of that. A typical preschool day consists of indoor and outdoor playtime, nap time and mealtime. Basic skills, such as color, shape and number recognition are taught at Paradigm, focusing on introducing preschool fundamentals through a variety of fun activities. Some activities include:
- Music Time
- Art Time
- Library Time
- Story Time
- Lego Lab
- Math/Science Room
- Multicultural Room
- Gross Motor Activities
Daily activities, such as these, allows for our two year old’s to develop skills and concepts. Our two-year-old curriculum lesson plans help improve their fine and gross motor skills as well.
