The Trainers Program is designed for children who are 2 years of age by October 1. The teachers use a combination of Creative Curriculum and DLC’s hands-on fun thematic units to introduce the children to learning topics, holidays, language skills, and more. This class builds on the children’s new found autonomy, language skills, and increased sense of self, with an environment that is rich in books, music, art, outdoor play, dramatic play, motor skill building, and sensory experiences. This class is eager to learn and is introduced to a more academic “circle time”. The children will not only sing songs and listen to stories, but will also learn basic concepts including weather, alphabet, numbers, shapes, and colors. Each child will participate daily in the following activities: circle time, music & movement, art, story time, language, math, science/social studies, and outdoor play (weather permitting). This class also emphasizes and encourages potty training.
