The Links to Learning Beginner program for ages 2-3 years expands on the foundation established in the toddler program. We begin to introduce more routine and structure to children’s activities and daily schedule. Your child will build vocabulary, learn functional numerical skills, and will be encouraged to use simple reasoning to explain everyday occurrences.
At this point, we introduce a Spanish-language program. Our daily activities continue to reinforce age-appropriate social development.
Language and Literacy
Children build vocabulary by discussing stories being read and begin to understand simple directions.
Your child will begin to explore number sets, experiment with textures, sort by colors and build reasoning skills.
Teachers encourage independence as children learn to verbalize wants and needs. They will also learn about taking turns.
Children develop ball handling and body movement skills and their ability to manipulate smaller objects improves.
Children play toy instruments, create multi-sensory art, and engage in pretend play.
Science & Social Studies
Children explore texture and speed and identify community helpers and members of their immediate family.
Citizens of the World
Children explore animals from around the world and learn Spanish vocabulary for colors, shapes, numbers and greetings.
