The Details

No terrible twos here! Lincoln Square Nursery and Preschool’s 2-year-old program supports the accelerated learning and independence achieved between the ages of 2 and 3-years-old. To ensure that active 2-year-olds have adequate opportunity to grow and learn, we maintain a low student to teacher ratio—1 teacher to 3 children.

We balance the need for consistency, with increased exposure to age-appropriate learning and development games, tools, and activities. Our toddler curriculum is designed with the core learning concepts listed below.

Age Group
2 - 3 Years Old
Class Size
1 Teacher to 3 Children

Supportive Learning Environment

LSNP provides a safe and supporting learning environment, and a home away from home designed to develop your 2-year-old’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. To build confidence and self-esteem, we personalize each activity so it meets the needs of both the group and each individual student.

Language and Literacy

At this age, 2-year-olds are engaging at a much higher level. Their communication and listening skills are advancing, and their memory and comprehension are greatly improved. We support their increased understanding of language and literacy with skill-specific learning. From story time, to learning the alphabet, peer-to-peer socialization, beginning reading, and relevant games, toys, and daily activities.

Daily Communication

We provide daily communication of achievements, changes in behavior, and general day-to-day activities. This ensures that you are apprised of your child’s growth and development, and that we are all working towards a shared vision for your 2-year-old’s early education.

Creative Learning

2-year-olds have heightened curiosity, improved imagination, and are eager to learn. They have much energy to expend, so we provide them with plenty of opportunities for both guided and self-selected play. We provide a growing selection of games and activities designed to develop artistic ability, musical ability, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, problem-solving skills, critical thinking, cause and effect, and much more!
