CREATING A LOVE OF LEARNING
Two-year-olds are filled with energy and curiosity about the world and are developing a sense of increasing independence – making two terrific, not terrible!
At Quality Time, the child care curriculum focuses on our philosophy, which is designed to support and reinforce the independence your two-year-old exhibits by providing fun and challenging activities.
ENGAGING YOUR TWO-YEAR-OLD’S NATURAL CURIOSITY
Our highly trained teachers help your child meet the key milestones of this important developmental stage in a daycare environment that provides what they need most – safety, freedom within boundaries, individual attention, enrichment and praises. Each classroom is designed with distinct Learning Centers where your child will participate in a range of stimulating experiences.
Quality Time Learning Center (Learning Centers)
- Blocks: Your child will develop emotionally, socially, cognitively and physically by using a variety of building materials to turn imagination into real-life creation.
- Dramatic Play: Our program helps children make sense of their world as they use their imagination and problem-solving abilities.
- Games & Puzzles: Your two-year-old will learn math and science concepts and develop fine motor skills by stacking, sorting, counting, putting together and taking apart various objects.
- Creative Arts: Through painting, sculpting or drawing, your child will learn eye-hand coordination, small muscle control and problem solving.
- Water & Sand: Sensory experience will provide your child with emotional outlets as well as a beginning knowledge of math and science concepts.
- Book & Storytelling: Exploring books and stories promotes a lifelong appreciation of literature and language.
YOUR TWO-YEAR-OLD’S DAY
Our unique curriculum offers 26 themed units to keep your two-year-old engaged in a progression of learning. The child care program at Quality Time also supports the toilet training process and helps create a plan that is consistent, positive and manageable – at home and school. In addition to standard care and play time, the typical daily structure for your two-year-old might include:
- Two large group times engaging children in story, song and discussion about theme-related topics.
- Discovery time offering both teacher-directed and self-directed opportunities to explore the Learning Centers.
- A snuggly story time.
- Lunch and nap time to nourish and rest your child’s growing mind and body.
- Outdoor play at least twice daily to burn off energy and develop motor skills.
