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.
