"KCC Two-Year-Old Program"

Two Year Olds

Our Two year olds like to be independent! Children at this age are curious about the world around them – a great deal of their day is spent exploring, pushing, pulling, filling, dumping, and touching. Your child will be encouraged to try new ideas and explore their surroundings – while learning about their world and being introduced to numbers, letters, shapes, and colors with the guidance of our experienced teachers.

Our two year olds build skills and confidence through games, songs, art, music and movement as our knowledgeable teachers provide an outlet for their creative expression. In addition, your child will be introduced to the alphabet, as well as, the phonetic annunciation of letters utilizing the Zoo-phonics Program (www.zoophonics.com).Your child will participate in daily small group instruction, which promotes individual skills and development. Here at Kids’ Care Club, we provide the perfect balance of learning, nurturing and playtime!
