Program for Two-Year Olds
Twos and Young Threes
St. David’s Episcopal Day School’s educational programs for children ages 18 months up to age three embraces toddlers’ and twos’ limitless curiosity and active discovery in a safe, nurturing environment. Our curriculum encompasses a whole-child approach to the development of learning and character. Children enrolled in our Twos and Young Threes Programs enhance their social/emotional, physical, intellectual, and language development through hands-on, self-directed activities where they can explore in their own way.
Purposeful play is the hallmark of our two-year old program. Through carefully designed process-focused activities based in play, our students learn important early math skills such counting, shapes, sorting, patterns, and matching; enhance receptive and expressive language development and pre-literacy skills through rhymes, stories, and songs; foster creativity and expression through art projects; gain problem-solving skills through socialization; support emotional intelligence through our Christian values curriculum; fine-tune gross motor skills through instruction in physical education and recess; and boost fine motor skills through sensory exploration inside our classroom and outdoors.
Our two-year old experience at St. David’s Episcopal Day School is further enhanced with extracurricular activities such as Spanish, physical education, music, library, and nature-based learning. Students attend a chapel service that celebrates all faiths and includes songs and an age-appropriate bible story. We invite parents to volunteer in our classrooms, and we celebrate our families through fun events held throughout the year.
