Your two year old is becoming more verbal, continuing to explore new things around them and is beginning to develop social skills. A balanced routine and flexibility is important at this age as your child’s developmental needs are different from their peers.
To do this, your child’s preschool teacher and our classroom create a nurturing, home-like classroom environment where your toddler is treated as a capable individual, whose opinions, actions and thoughts are respected and valued.
Our Reggio Emilia-inspired, emergent learning curriculum is designed to stimulate the whole child through experiences in math, science, language, drama and music. Language development is rapid at this age, so we also take this opportunity to help increase their vocabulary. All lessons are presented in a way to help develop each child’s imagination by learning through play.
Our Proprietary Reggio Emilia-Inspired Curriculum
Our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine®, is based on the latest research and trends to prepare your children for their educational careers, equipping them with cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and language skills. At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® we believe a child’s work is play. We teach your children age-appropriate lessons, manners, and social skills all through creative and purposeful play. We believe children who enjoy learning at a young age will carry it with them throughout their lives. Each month we have original projects, provide each classroom with new materials that reflect the monthly theme and provide related activities to support the individual concepts of the “whole child.”
We love Little Sunshine's Playhouse! The staff and teachers are excellent. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and truly care about the children. They are teachers and orchestrate full days of curriculum and activities to keep the kids fully engaged and learning. The special offerings like daily Spanish, yoga, sports and culinary class make this place truly special!"
