Preschool for 2-Year-Olds

Promoting Social, Cognitive & Language Development.

Ivybrook Academy’s two-year-old Preschool program teaches developmentally appropriate social skills and builds strong a foundation for future growth. In our Preschool, children are allowed to flourish in an environment complete with child-initiated activities that balance discovery and play. Two-year-olds have incredible imaginations, and we encourage them to use their creative mind through pretend play, art, sensory skill activities, building blocks, and more. Our classrooms allow for child choice, self-directed play, and small groups. Our teachers will also help them understand how their actions affect others and encourage student independence.

Here are four reasons why we are the best choice for two-year-old Preschool:

· Our hands-on activities help children think critically, learn problem-solving, and introduce independence

· We help children discover their unique collection of skills and passions

· We introduce children to group activities and socialization

· Our curriculum promotes social, cognitive, and language development

Our Two-Year-Old Programs

Designed for the inquisitive nature of young children, the younger two-year-old program introduces the innovative Ivybrook Academy curriculum. Our young learners will participate in a wide array of customized independent and group activities. This encourages children to learn about themselves and ask questions about the world around them through exploration and discovery. Students’ learning is supported in a well-integrated environment, inspiring the imagination.

Curiosity and independence are interwoven within a sense of community. Younger two-year-olds have a compassionate and collaborative spirit. They absorb the warmth of their teachers, thus thriving in our loving classroom environment. The younger two-year-old program promises to encourage your child as they step into the next chapter of their childhood.

Our Older Two-Year-Old Program

With an abundance of opportunities to promote verbal, social, and physical growth, our older two-year-old classroom is an ideal setting for the curious young learner. Our dedicated and talented teaching team encourages children’s independence through age-appropriate activities.

Our teachers understand that children learn best through a multi-sensory learning approach. This lays the foundation for your child to be empowered to be a learner capable of adaptable and creative problem-solving. Each day your child will be given opportunities to experience the joys of learning. As the year progresses, you will be able to witness that magical moment in childhood where the door opens and lets the future in.

The Benefits of Half-Day Preschool

Half-day preschool programs offer a variety of benefits for young children, including the opportunity to develop social and emotional skills in a safe and secure environment. Half day programs also provide an introduction to school-like structure, while allowing parents or guardians to still be involved in their child’s learning and development during the afternoon hours. From reading books together or doing educational activities, parents can use this time as an opportunity to further develop their child’s learning skills and help build upon the foundation that was established in their half-day program.

Half-day preschool also provides kids with a unique opportunity to interact with other children of similar ages in a supervised setting. Through play activities and educational games, students have an opportunity to learn important socialization skills such as sharing toys and taking turns speaking during conversations – all under the guidance of trained teachers who understand how to manage and encourage these activities. Furthermore, half-day preschool programs also provide students with a basic introduction to school-like structure – helping them prepare for the transition into full day kindergarten when they are older.

Half-day preschool programs are designed with busy families in mind, giving parents the flexibility to drop their child off at school before heading into work for the day. This gives parents more time to focus on their job while giving them peace of mind knowing that their child is in a safe and educational environment, perfect for their development. From the quality of education to the introduction of social skills, Half Day Preschool programs from Ivybrook Academy are an ideal option for busy families who want to provide their child with quality educational experiences at an early age.
