In our two year old class, we use a Bible Based Curriculum in which the alphabet is introduced, math concepts such as; numbers 1-10, rote counting 1-25, shapes, colors, matching and sorting, as well as concepts of position, (in, out, up, etc.) Social Skills are taught through manners, sharing, taking turns, how to sit and stay at a table for eating or activity, and basic structure introduced in classroom. They continue their communication skills through sign language, talking in short sentences, finger plays, poems, nursery rhymes, music and daily story time. Art and play centers are also a fun part of their day, developing their fine motor skills each morning and afternoon. We use their 5 senses in learning, so they retain what they are taught easier. Review time, called circle time s every morning, along with their Bible Story. We strive to provide a fun, hands on learning throughout the day in a loving, safe environment.
