Caterpillar

CHILDREN 2 TO 3 YEARS OLD
  • Our caterpillar program is designed with your toddler in mind. Our play-based curriculum, toys and learning materials are designed to spark the interest and learning of your 2 to 3 year old. 

    During this stage of development, your preschooler is beginning to learn more about themselves and how to establish and sustain positive relationships. 

  • During this stage, we work on:
    • Greeting peers and adults when requested
    • Expressing affection physically and verbally
    • Comforting others who are in distress
    • And more
    • Demonstrating an awareness of classroom routines
    • Identifying familiar objects by touch
    • Looking at a book independently and commenting on pictures
    • Sequencing actions into meaningful order
    • And more
    • Moving up and down a small slide independently
    • Standing on tip toes for several seconds
    • Jumping over small objects
    • And more
