Older Toddler 2.5: Ages 2.5 years to 3 years old (you must be 3 years old by Sept. 1st to move up to Pre-K3)
The Older Toddler 2.5 room provides each child with a safe and loving learning environment. The room follows a state ratio of 1:6. This age group acts as a bridge from a childcare environment to a preschool environment. In this classroom, children begin to work on letter and number recognition as well as colors, shapes, and early literacy and math skills. They also work on their independent skills, potty training, and interpersonal skills to prepare for transitioning to the Pre-K3 room. Once your child turns 3 years old they will move up to the Older Toddler 2.5 room and slowly acclimate to a 1:10 ratio. They class will move as a group to Pre-K3 the summer before Pre-K3. This ensures that your child will meet the 5 years old by September 1st requirement for Kindergarten without having to repeat a classroom, which helps our children that don’t meet the Kindergarten cutoff date.
