Early Learning Program (Ages 2-3)

The Early Learner is a blur of activity while figuring out how the world works.

Often a child's first learning experience, early learners are beginning to identify their thoughts and feelings through play. The early learning program supports children as they navigate social relationships, develop play skills, and foster self-help and problem solving skills such as sharing.
