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 every day occurrences.
At this point, we introduce a Spanish-language program. Our daily activities continue to reinforce age-appropriate social development.
Language & 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.
The World & Me
Teachers encourage independence as children learn to verbilize wants and needs. They will also learn about taking turns.
Children will develop ball handling and body movement skills and their ability to manipulate smaller objects improves.
Children learn songs and simple dances. They play instruments and identify loud and soft sounds.
Children explore colors and lines through both teacher-created art experiences and independent work.
Teachers introduce Spanish vocabulary for basic colors, shapes, numbers and greetings.
