Two Year Old Program

At A Sunny Start Preschool, our PK2 program provides a more structured setting for learning. The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers, and Twos is used to teach social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development. With this curriculum, teachers can respond to the individual needs and learning styles of all children. It is one of the only curriculums and assessment systems that are inclusive of all children – those developing typically, children with disabilities, and English language learners.

Program Highlights

Painting with brushes at daycareVaried Curriculum

  • Our bilingual class, taught in English and Spanish, brings the themes of early childhood to life.
  • In addition to providing the nurturing, loving atmosphere that they have grown accustomed to in our infant and toddler programs, we offer our students a variety of components to supplement our rich academic curriculum.
  • Music and art activities are planned to promote creative development and self-expression, as well as to stimulate brain activity.
  • Gross motor skills are supported through throwing, kicking, climbing, balancing, jumping, running, marching, and playing outdoor games.
  • Potty Training and other self-help habits are woven into the daily routine to develop autonomous, self-reliant individuals.

Using scissors to build practical day care skillsPre-Writing Development

  • In the PK2 program, our teachers focus on developing the fine motor skills and hand strength that are essential for future success in handwriting and scissor skills.
  • Fine motor skills are developed through the use of painting, cutting, threading, tweezing, completing puzzles, and through the use of buttons, zippers, and snaps.
  • Pre-writing skills are taught through using a crayon for drawing scribbles and lines (vertical, horizontal, curves, and circles.)
  • Our teachers support these emerging concepts through positive reinforcement and constant praise.

  • Language development is an essential component of the PK2 class.
  • Two Year Olds often go through a “language explosion” at this age, speaking in complete sentences seemingly from one day to the next. We know, however, that this language has been engrained in the child’s thought processes for some time, and it is joy to see how much their personality changes when they begin to express themselves verbally!
  • Our curriculum for Twos includes an enriched vocabulary through literature, special concepts, and thematic units such as transportation, animals, insects, weather, seasons, holidays, and more.

Stacking blocks to reinforce Montessori stacking conceptsPre-Math

  • Early mathematics activities build the foundation for future mastery of number skills and logical thinking.
  • Our teachers prepare a variety of activities in the areas of number sense, geometry, simple measurement, and reasoning.
  • Shape and Color Recognition are essential components in our curriculum that lead to the introduction of concepts such as patterns.
  • Our teachers prepare number recognition and number value activities (from numbers 1-9) to teach children the concept each number has a unique set of properties.

Reading begins at a young age, I’m almost ready for VPK!Pre-Reading

  • Students are taught pre-reading skills to prepare them for our advanced preschool curriculum.
  • At A Sunny Start Preschool, we have the utmost respect for a child’s development and follow developmentally appropriate practices, while exposing them to data that will plant the seeds of academic knowledge in their minds.
  • Our teacher begin a gradual introduction to letter recognition and beginning word sounds through Circle Time games and one on one interaction.
  • Students begin to practice word recognition skills through interacting with color words, their first name, classmates’ names, and environmental print.

Testimonials:

Little girl happy with her food
My 3 year old daughter Hazel has attended A Sunny Start Preschool since the summer and she loves it. At first she had to adjust but the teachers were always so welcoming and made her feel comfortable. The teachers and staff always look happy to be working there. I’m a teacher as well so I expect a lot from a school and this school has surpassed my expectations. I’m at peace when I drop her off. One of the best things is the app that the school uses called Tadpoles. With Tadpoles the school sends me daily reports, pictures, videos, and so much more. Nothing is better than receiving a picture or video in the middle of my work day. Great school!

Parent Testimonials

  • My daughter graduated from the school this year and started Kindergarten. Going into her fourth week of her big transition, her teachers informed me that she had an outstanding base from her preschool and is reading first grade level! A Sunny Start Preschool prepared my little girl in a spectacular way! The staff is very professional and family oriented not to mention superb state of the art facility. Needless to say I highly recommend the school!

    - Rocky, Dad of Natalia
  • I love love love this preschool/daycare! Very caring and loving staff and my oldest son loves going every day! I am so excited my twins also started a few months ago, they are so happy here as well. The teachers here are amazing! They genuinely care about the students and the woman in charge of curriculum for the school is always looking for new and great ways to teach the kids. I have 3 children at this school and could not be happier.

    – Samantha T. – Mom of Mason, Logan, and Olivia
  • My grandchildren have all attended A Sunny Start Preschool and this was the only preschool they attended. Three of the four are already in Elementary School and thanks to the foundation that they developed in this school, they are students with high grades. Thank you very much to all the teachers who are always attentive and patient with children. The quality of academics that children receive at this school is evident in their success.

    - Liliana, grandmother of Xavier, Jocey, Zander, and Amanda
  • I would recommend this school to any parent searching for a preschool with an excellent curriculum. My daughter is 7 years old and attended this preschool. After graduating from Pre K she tested advanced at her current Charter elementary school. Her teachers were impressed at her knowledge and how advanced her reading was. This school helped her read and went over all the subjects she needed to prepare her for Elementary. She recently tested for gifted this year by MDCPS. This was all due to the foundation she received here. The teachers are amazing and caring. Two of my friends that had their children here also tested for gifted. I am so happy with the school, the curriculum, the teachers, and the staff and now my son currently attends A Sunny Start Preschool. I would not go anywhere else.

    - Barbie, mom of Enzo and Sophia
  • I'm happy to have found this place. The attention is the best. The teachers are the best. My children learn something new every day. I wholeheartedly say to you that every child that goes through this program comes out a winner!

    – Gladys M, Mom of Denisse and Daniela
  • I recommended A Sunny Start Preschool to all whom have children from birth to 6 & more if they would take older.  I am a proud mother of very bright and advanced children thanks to the tutelage of Teacher Carmen, Milly, Angela, & Sofia. As you can see I have had an experience with every level of teacher in the school. I have a Kindergarten boy which I am proud to say is in K- 1 in his school. For those who do not know what K-1, this is where Kindergarten students are also being taught with 1st graders. My four year old is still at A Sunny Start Preschool and she is extremely bright. The curriculum in her class is incredibly advanced and even though I hate homework she is always excited and eager to do it. She can identify words and knows her numbers this also has to do with the fact she loves her school. All this and she has not yet started VPK because of her birthday, but she will be starting come this school year. Thank you Jennifer, Carmen, Milly, Angela, Sofia & Tatiana you guys are the best.
