At this age, children are little sponges, picking up every bit of information about the world around them. Most things that your two-year-old learns will be through play and normal social interaction.
Always remember that every child develops at their own pace. At CSS Preschool, our toddler teachers use an integrated approach paying attention to your young child's physical skill development, self-expression, socialization, coping strategies, cognitive learning, as well as his or her emotional adjustment and well-being.
Part of our curriculum will cover the following:
Action words to help them communicate (more, go, come, want, up, down, etc.)
Manners (please, thank you)
Names of body parts
Animal sounds and names of animals
Names (their own first and last name and names of family and friends)
Vehicles (cars, trucks, firetruck, airplane)
Household objects (names of certain foods, utensils, furniture, clothing, daily use items)
Colors and shapes
Sizes (big, small, tall, short)
Direction words (below, above, next to, on top, underneath, etc. )
Weather (sunny, rainy, cloudy, windy, snowy, hot, cold, etc.)
Because of children's growing desire to be independent, this stage is often called the "terrible twos." However, this can be an exciting time for parents and toddlers. Toddlers will experience huge thinking, learning, social, and emotional changes that will help them to explore their new world and make sense of it.
