How Your Child is Developing Learning Skills

While a program for a two-year-old may differ much from an older child’s curriculum, it’s still important that the desire for learning is instilled at a young age. And, this is a big part of our two year old preschool program. So, we track how your child may react to learning and various methods which instill learning by measuring:

  • If a child shows interest in wanting to perform self-help skills
  • If a child directs attention towards objects by reaching, grasping, or staring at them
  • Whether a child focuses on reader or storyteller for brief periods of time
  • If a child displays recognition and excitement about game or toys from the previous day
  • How a child applies knowledge to new situations
  • If a child tracks people and objects by moving head as they move
the Development of Effective Communication

Two is the age when individuals start to recognize and memorize words and phrases. So, it’s important to track that your child is developing communication skills on track with others his/her own age. To track communication in our 2 year old preschool classrooms, we record:

  • If a child uses 8-10 understandable words in home language
  • That a child has a receptive vocabulary of over 50 words
  • If a child can combine words and gestures
  • That a child uses some pronouns
  • If a child can change volume and pitch to convey meaning
  • Whether a child points to words in a book or not
  • How a child shows preference for certain books
  • If a child shows pleasure when read to
  • If a child makes marks on paper with crayons/markers
  • How a child experiments with grasp when using a variety of writing tools
Measuring Your Child’s Physical Health

We want to make sure that all children are physically developing the way they are expected. So, to determine that your child is developing physically like those around him/her, we measure if:

  • A child stoops or squats to explore things on the ground
  • The child consistently reaches for toys, objects, and bottles with both hands
  • A child can turn pages of large book
  • The child coordinates eye and hand movements
  • A child initiates active play
  • If a child attempts new gross and fine motor activities
  • The child assists with hand washing
Measuring Your Child’s Mental Development

To make sure children are cognitively developing the way they need, our instructors track:

  • Whether a child begins to demonstrate to repeat actions many times to cause the desired effect
  • If a child can imitate behavior seen in another place and time
  • If a child uses objects as intended
  • Whether a child understands how familiar objects are used in combination with one another
  • If a child can imitate rote counting using some names of numbers
  • How a child explores measuring tools
  • If a child recognizes the beginning and end of an activity
