Preschool 2 and 3-year-olds developmental education

Our Preschool 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds combine fun and learning in their daily activities. Toddlers play with books, blocks, and puzzles, and have special "circle" times each day where teachers read their favorite books to the class, act out stories and nursery rhymes, sing silly songs, and play games together. For the older 2's and 3's, each class introduces daily weather, days of the week, months, shapes, letters and numbers, and time concepts. Arts and crafts add to learning too, as each week's learning theme is added to pictures to color or crafts to make.
