Two Year Old Daycare in Mars, PA
We offer a five day a week comprehensive academic daycare program for our two year old preschoolers.
Each day of the week, basic aspects of our program are reinforced through songs, active learning centers, games and structured indoor and outdoor play. Two days a week we provide a focused academic morning program which emphasizes our program goals through the use of our separate academic area for the two year old preschoolers. Calendar time, story time, the reinforcement of letters and numbers and hands-on learning are just part of our approach to a quality academic program for our two year olds.
