Two Year Old Program

The two year old program (starts at 2.5 years) at Mini-Skool is a preparation for our three year old program and focuses on developing independence , self help skills and fine motor skills.

Our two’s program consists of : pencil control, scissor control, preschool concepts, math, language, science/sensory, large motor, dramatic play, families and cultures, practical life, toilet training, fine motor and creative art.

Two year old’s are experiencing many conflicting emotions. Our program will help each child to be able to name those emotions and start to problem solve for themselves. Our toilet training program will guide each child through the toileting process, encouraging independence and self confidence.

Our two year old program focuses on fine motor skills especially pencil and scissor control as these skills are needed to our three year old program. Our two’s will spend time learning how to hold a pencil and scissors while cutting or drawing on straight lines. We will also start to introduce preschool concepts such as shapes and colours. Language and math are also an important part of this program.

Social skills are starting to emerge and our teachers will use “teachable moments” to help with this sometimes difficult process.

Mini-Skool has been the trusted daycare of choice for families in Ontario for almost 50 years. Health and Safety has always been the number one priority for our children. We are concerned about some of the allegations that were made concerning possible tampering with the wipes belonging to one of our children. Mini-Skool fully supports the police investigation into this matter. If somebody has done something to harm one of our children, Mini-Skool wants that individual or those individuals brought to justice. Mini-Skool is committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety and well-being of the children in our care.
