Open to children born between September 2017 and December 2017, Step-Up Two’s is designed as a “stepping stone” into our Nursery program.
The group will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:15 -11:00 AM, October through December. An adult (mom/dad/nanny) is required to stay in class. Our goal during this initial phase will be to work toward separation. From January through June we will “step-up” to a full separation and the class will meet for 2 hours – 9:15 am – 11:15 am.
The children will have a morning filled with art, music, stories, gym/playground time, free play, snack and of course, socialization under the nurturing direction of our loving Toddler Staff.
Our program for the two-year-old child is designed to ease his/her separation from home. In their first nursery school experience, our youngest children learn the values of sharing, being part of a group and discovering independence in a warm and supportive atmosphere. Play is an important mode of learning with initial experiences in crafts, music, stories and finger play.
The three-year-old child explores the world around him/her and learns to socialize through planned activities and creative play. The first steps are taken in understanding number concepts and reading readiness. Jewish holidays are celebrated through arts and crafts, songs and stories.
Our Pre-K curriculum is designed to maximize the infinite creativity of this age group. Four-year-olds love to try out their own ideas, and we provide them with the materials and encouragement to do so. We explore the community we live in and learn about our place in society. Hands-on science, math, early literacy and whole language experiences enhance this program. The children use Handwriting without Tears and are immersed in a Pre-K curriculum which prepares them for Kindergarten
