Age Group 

Two and a half years to five years old

While every child develops at his/her own rate, we have found the following characteristics to be generally true of this age group:

  • These children transition from a "play alone" stage to a "play with friends" stage
  • The need for a balance between group and individual time is one of crucial importance

Curriculum Focus

  • Children are able to choose from a variety of activities, including outdoor play, manipulatives, art, music, movement, dress up, cooking, etc.
  • We emphasize social development and intentional play to prepare our children to be skillful negotiators and creative problem solvers
