Children two and up are also able to go on our many fun and exciting field trips. We usually go to Sesame Street Live, Disney on Ice, the Circus, the pumpkin patch, and the Zoo to name a few!
Children two and up receive morning and afternoon snack at the Center! We serve 1% milk with snacks and at lunch time. Monthly snack menus are posted on the classroom Facebook pages and available in the lobby.
Children can be notoriously picky eaters. Since you know best what your child will eat and enjoy, we ask all parents to pack their child's lunch every day. Microwaves are available and we are happy to reheat their food!
Two year olds are on a mission every day to discover their world. They are rambunctious, inquisitive, and delightful! At Quala Care, we understand the reward and challenge of caring for two year olds. Once your child has turned two, Quala Care's Preschool Prep Program begins. in a class of twelve, your child is able to begin adjusting to a more structured day. We provide a variety of enriching activities so your child can learn new skills. When learning is fun, the sky is the limit!
Curriculum in our Preschool Prep Program allows children to fine tune the many skills they have been developing in their early toddler years. We incorporate fine and gross motor skills, listening techniques, body awareness, cognitive development, language development, visual stimulus/recognition, and social interaction education.
Children in our Preschool Prep Program are busy learning basic concepts, such as the alphabet, numbers, shapes, days of the week, months of the year, and colors. A variety of thematic curriculum units throughout the year allow students to experience content areas such as math, science, language, and social studies.
One of the biggest accomplishments the children make throughout the year is mastering self-toileting skills. Teachers and parents work together to help children have a positive and successful toilet learning experience. Hand washing and general hygiene awareness are emphasized in the classroom's bathroom which is equipped with child-sized toilets and sinks.
Fostering independence is a key element in our Preschool Prep Program. It is important for caregivers to allow children in this stage of development the opportunity to develop their independence so they can gain confidence in their abilities and build self-esteem.
The children love playing on their separate, protected playground where they may climb, play with toys, and explore the covered sandbox!
At this age, your child may begin receiving center snack in the mornings and afternoons. Monthly snack menus are posted on the classroom Facebook pages and available in the lobby. Once they turn two, children may also begin going on our many field trips!
