15 Months - Two Year Old Program:
The curriculum for our young toddlers and two year
old children focuses on the natural curiosity and energy of children. Children are introduced to activities that
assist with their development and individual exploration is encouraged. Children work on self help skills like
getting their own lunch box, washing their hands, pouring their own water,
putting on their shoes, getting dressed by themselves. Children are encouraged
to participate to the level they are capable.
Every attempt is applauded and encouraged; whether their attempts are at
using new words, new skill or new ideas. Vocabulary is built at a rapid rate as children are given the words to use if they do not have the words themselves. This is the age where they begin to use words to resolve conflicts rather than hitting, kicking or biting.

The Academy for Early Learning utilizes individual child assessments and developmental screening tools to develop an Individual Education Plan (IEP) targeted specifically for your child. So no matter where your child is developmentally, we partner with you to map out a course to help them reach the next level and beyond.
The Academy for Early Learning utilizes a "wholistic" (focusing on the whole child) curriculum which fosters every dimension of your child's development.
