Focusing on Emotions & Connections
At Milestones, there is nothing terrible about the twos. It is a time for your child to explore their emotions and how to communicate. We help them navigate social interactions, providing them lifelong communications skills.
Milestones to Prepare for What’s Next
Your two-year-old’s development will provide them a road map for their future. We are tracking their changes in behavior and mobility. We do assessments and look for the following milestones as your child grows through our preschool daycare program:
- Learns and uses words to describe what they are thinking and doing
- Demonstrates the ability to carry out and follow simple words
- Matches items that go together
- Engages with stories and books
- Recognizes familiar people, places, and things
- Works on self-help skills
- Develops control of large and small muscles
- Shows more coordinated hand and eye movements
- Continues working on self-feeding
- Shows interest in numbers, shapes, and colors
- Begins to learn rules, routines, and directions
- Begins to develop and demonstrate control over some feelings and behavior (self-regulation)
- Continues to work on self-help skills in the bathroom and potty training
Learning through Play
The focus of our youngest students should be on play. Through fun and engaging activities, our two-year-olds learn essential skills such as problem solving, working with others, and concentration. While you see growth in their communication and social skills, your child only knows they have fun at daycare.
