Faith Baptist Schools pre-school for two-year-olds is now open to our community for enrollment.

As a unique gift from God, every child develops differently and at varying degrees of complexity. While it often seems that children develop along some predictable milestones, they may not advance up these steps in the same way or at the same time.  The environment and experiences in these early developmental stages of a child’s life greatly influenced who he or she will become. Listed below are a few “widely-held expectations” for what an average two-year-old child might achieve during the year.

Research shows that if children start school with a strong set of attitudes and skills that help them “learn how to learn,” they will be better able to take advantage of educational opportunities. While some learning skills come naturally to children, many can be developed through a supportive environment and positive peer groups.

What to anticipate this year in Faith Baptist’s two-year-old kindergarten:

Character Development

  • The warm, nurturing Christian environment of our pre-school will be filled with children’s songs, lessons on kindness, forgiveness, sharing, and waiting for their turn.
  • Parents who have had children in our two-year-old program really appreciate and respect how their child learns to follow instructions and work together to clean up messes.

 

 

Language Development

New discoveries are also facilitated by a two-year-old’s blossoming language skills that prompt many “why,” “what” and “how” questions. During the year, children this age pick up most parts of speech to form more complete sentences, and they can understand and say hundreds of words. They also learn to understand simple directions.

We believe that children this age are capable of learning the groundwork for reading and writing. They enjoy having books read to them and may pretend to “read” as they independently look through familiar books. Two-year-olds can sing the A-B-C song, but they don’t commonly understand that the letter names correspond to specific graphic designs.

Cognitive Development

Because two-year-olds enjoy using their senses and motor skills to explore the world and are highly curious about unfamiliar objects and events, they will interact with many tactile and fun objects. They will learn to solve simple problems with the “trial and error” method, and they like to practice an activity many times to master it. Children this age also pretend more during play, using familiar objects and situations to process their daily experiences.

Children will begin their potty training as soon as they start pre-school at Faith Baptist, and most children will learn how to use the toilet on their own in the first few months.
