In our two’s and threes room they are encouraged to explore their independence and to learn self-help skills necessary for their age. We teach them to further develop their language and to explore/communicate their emotions/feelings through activities. Our classrooms have blocks, dramatic play items, books, math, science, and music areas for the children to further develop. The children can explore their motor skills through various climbers.
The Innovations series is a complete, interactive curriculum for infants and toddlers. In addition to the wealth of activities, each book includes these critical components: applying child development theory to everyday experiences; using assessment to meet individual developmental needs; using the physical environment as a learning tool; developing a partner relationship with parents; fostering an interactive climate in the classroom; and educating parents.
The Innovations series is a unique combination of the practical and theoretical. It combines them in a way that supports beginning teachers, informs experienced teachers, and provides a complete program for every teacher!
