2 year olds
Our 2-year-old program is designed to harness the joy and excitement that accompanies turning two. Children develop language, increased attention span and greater physical capabilities in one fell swoop. POTA is there to provide the environment and program that matches and supports these newfound abilities. Our program helps children pursue and embrace greater autonomy and provides flexibility of choice. When our two-year-olds make choices and take appropriate risks, they begin to find their individual voices. Children are surrounded by interesting, relevant, and thought-provoking materials that spark creativity and prompt them to develop a vocabulary with which to communicate, make comments, and ask questions.
Our toddler children enjoy sensory play, art experiences, music, science experiments, story time, block building and dramatic play. They explore color and light and play with mirrors. They handle and manipulate natural objects such as branches, pine cones, leaves, acorns, seashells, rocks, and flower petals. They are introduced to a school routine and structure. They are supported throughout the day to learn self-help and independence skills, such as using the bathroom and dressing and feeding themselves.
