Preschool 2s & 3s
Two- and three-year olds are naturally curious and are constantly making discoveries about themselves and the world around them. Stevens two- and three-year-old programs provide a safe and engaging environment for children to explore, form friendships and develop a positive attitude toward school.
At this age, the more children use their senses, the more they learn. Classroom activities for these age groups are hands-on and interactive, allowing children to channel their curiosity and energy into the development of language and social skills, motor skills and literacy.
Two- and three-year-olds engage in activities that foster mathematical and scientific thinking in ways that are most relevant to them, such as the making use of a recent snowfall to observe the different states of snow in different temperatures. They also participate in art, music and movement on a regular basis.The half-day morning two-year-olds program takes place at 301 Bloomfield Street five days a week. The half-day three-year-olds program, located at 339 River Street, is also held in the mornings five days a week. For the 2020-2021 school year, we are excited to offer a more flexible extended day offering for families enrolling in the 3s program. In addition to our half day program five mornings a week from 8:30am - 11:30am, families have the option to add Early Morning Care beginning at 7:45am and can sign up for extended care from 11:30am - 3:30pm one to five days per week and Aftercare from 3:30pm – 6:00pm one to five days per week. Dependent on your own schedule, you will be able to select the days that you would like to extend your care in the afternoons. Prices for these options will be made available this Fall.
