Morningside Presbyterian Preschool
Toddler Class 15 months by September 1st
Our toddler class provides many opportunities for our young toddlers to express themselves in their newfound power of mobility. We also furnish the children with many occasions to encourage their independence, by providing them with choices in their environment. Our staff helps to introduce language for the toddlers to begin to problem solve and communicate with the world around them. Creativity is always a part of our day through hands on activities with both fine and gross motor skills in mind. Most important in our toddler class is that the toddler develop a love of learning and the wonder within one's self. Click for pictures of toddler rooms.
Two-year-old Class 2 years by September 1st
Our two-year-olds are driven to explore and discover. The twos curriculum allows your child to spend busy, fun-filled days engaged in activities that promote learning and discovery. Our twos class makes use of all the activities that come naturally to them. They participate in cooking, painting, storytelling, singing and dancing, dressing up, science discovery, and experimenting with materials like sand and water. These play experiences help younger children develop language, cooperation, helping skills, negotiation; learn to socialize for the first time; and exercise their independence. The teachers will motivate children to learn about the physical and social world in which they live through playful interaction with objects and people. We provide every opportunity possible for your child to develop his or her own interests, at his or her own pace. Click for pictures of two-year old rooms.
