Welcome to Foundations 2 Class - Explorers (AGES: 2 to 3 YEARS OLD)


In our Foundations 2 - Explorers class for children aged 2-3, we continue to build upon the strong foundation established in our Early Learners class. Our curriculum is designed to encourage children's growth and development in all areas, including language, literacy, and communication. Our program promotes bilingual education in French and Spanish, and children will further develop their skills in letterland phonics and literacy.

In this class, children will be introduced to advanced concepts in science and mathematics through hands-on, inquiry-based activities that foster problem-solving and discovery skills. Our visual and performing arts program will continue to inspire creativity and self-expression through engaging activities and experiences. The curriculum also places a strong emphasis on life skills and sensory awareness, promoting healthy habits and social-emotional development.
