Playgroup Curriculum(2.0- 3.0 Yrs.)
The world is a fascinating place for 2-year olds to explore. Everything they see, touch, smell, hear and taste is an exciting new discovery. They want to explore, touch, understand and mimic their adults, teachers and parents. Keeping in view the needs of the child, our playgroup curriculum focuses on the below key areas of development.
3 hours Session
Arts and Literacy
As a 2-year-old, Children constantly practice and increase their vocabularies. We support your child’s language development with engaging interactions, playfulreading sessions, and ad-hoc language games. Children are encouraged to read, sing, chant and participate in theme related activities
Children are encouraged to engage in counting, identifying numerals, understanding size, shape, and patterns, Ability to count verbally, identifying more and less of a quantity, matching sets or knowing which group has four and which has five
Children are given opportunity to recognize the parts of human body, discuss the difference between people, animals and Plants. As Children are natural explorers, they can investigate items that float and sink in the water table and search for buried treasures in the sand table.
Social and Emotional Development
Loving relationships give children a sense of comfort, safety, confidence, and encouragement and a Strong, positive relationships help children develop trust, empathy, compassion, and a sense of right and wrong. Children are allowed to play interactively with their peers and participate in pretend play, a critical aspect of children’s development. Pretend play builds language, thinking, and social skills when children take on roles and develop their own ideas and stories.
Gross and Fine Motor Development
Gross motor development refers to physical skills that use large body movements, normally involving the entire body. Children develop their ability to run, jump and hop by playing on our age appropriate activity area where they participate in throw & kick a ball and push themselves around with their feet sitting on a riding toy.
Fine motor skills are necessary to engage in smaller, more precise movements, normally using the hands and fingers. Children are encouraged to enhance their fine motor skills by building towers out of blocks, mold clay into rough shapes, using scissors and scribble with a crayon or pencil. They also insert objects into matching spaces, such as placing round pegs into round holes and often begin showing a preference for using one hand more often than the other, which is the beginning of becoming left or right-handed.
