Dolphin Room

Children are innately curious learners. Their mind and bodies are undergoing rapid development in many ways and they need a secure and supportive environment to explore and learn. By providing an active and engaging learning environment, The DOPHIN ROOM will be an ideal setting for your 2-3 year old children.


The curriculum consists of several thematic units that provide fun and challenging activities which last year-round. We focus on the development of the whole child. By listening to stories, singing songs, engaging in fun physical activities, participating in different visual and performing art activities, children develop their vocabulary, social skills, physical abilities, and good hygiene.


Major skills and outcomes:

 

Young children’s learning is heavily dependent on the development of language, thinking, and cognitive and socio-emotional skills. They learn in the context of interactions with important adults and peers. Their development and learning depend on the individual development pathways and the experiences they have at home and in the classroom. Therefore, our carefully planned curriculum and activities allow children to develop key skills in the DOLPHIN ROOM by engaging in a variety of instructional activities.
