Preschool for Two's
Encouraging Curiosity and Play
Manipulative toys are used to promote eye-hand coordination. Teachers emphasize daily routines and social interaction through family style meals and other small group activities. Picture books, songs and skits are used to increase color, shape and number recognition.
Teachers organize socio-dramatic play activities so children can dress-up and role-play. This develops new skills, such as problem-solving, self-care routines and conversation. Children are frequently read stories to build listening skills and are often asked to repeat the stories to develop memory recognition.
