This program is for children approximately two to three years of age. It is a bridge between
the toddler program and the Preschool department. The emphasis in this program is on
building each child's self-esteem through developing and encouraging autonomy.
A gradual shift is taking place in children of this age group from the total dependency of
the toddler to discovery of the separate identity of self. By encouraging each child
individually and by facilitating situations for each child to do things on their own, we help
you children feel a sense of mastery and accomplishment over their environment. This sense
of mastery is a vital stepping stone in the process of developing the confidence to tackle
increasingly difficult tasks over time.
