Two-year-olds are full of wonder. This is an exciting time for these young learners, who are changing physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. The focus of the preschool program is to give children the opportunity to learn through play in a loving, caring environment. Days are filled with busy explorations, investigations, and discoveries. Children express themselves through art, music, and movement. They practice math and number concepts using age-appropriate materials to organize, sort, count, build, and sequence. They explore the world of science through weather, cooking, and seasonal activities. They develop motor skills and coordination while running, jumping, hopping, skipping, throwing, and catching in the gym. They demonstrate an emerging love of reading and writing, using growing literacy skills during read-aloud, shared readings, reading groups, and writing centers.
Children use language to share, communicate, and interact with friends. They enjoy books, stories, games, projects, and songs based on curricular themes that are introduced in a whole-group setting, and then extended to small-group work and individual lessons. A print-rich environment and a love of reading are fostered to allow the children to practice literacy skills in real-life situations.
Our children begin to develop a rich vocabulary and use language on a daily basis through informal conversations with their teachers. They discover a new way to express themselves both in words and ideas. This allows their social world to expand even further. Days are filled with making meaning of every learning opportunity encountered at school.

Having fun and learning is what Chocolate kids play’s summer program is all about. Our new summer program is a great enrichment to our standard program. Students will be exposed to the rich traditions of South America, Africa, North America, Asia and Europe. Our summer program will enable children to learn about the distinct and various languages, foods, dress and traditions of specific regions. Children will be engaged in meaningful hands on learning, where they will be able to participate and share in all of the different traditions that make each region unique.
Additionally, Chocolate kids innovative school utilizes all of our local resources to expose children to the arts. Musical concerts, children’s theater productions, visits to the park for water play, exciting field trips, in-house entertainment and exposure to lots of sunshine are just some of the fun things we will do during the summer.
Our new summer program was designed for children on the go. The theme-based program was created to inspire your child to explore, create, interact and stay active during the summer months. We have chosen developmentally and age appropriate activities, lessons and games for both learning and fun to enhance what your child has already learned. Your child’s summer vacation at our program becomes a strong foundation for future success.
Our program is designed to allow two-year-olds to learn through play while encouraging (and noticing) individual interests. By promoting independence and developing an emerging awareness of social behavior, we help young learners expand their world beyond the home to the school community. Teachers support growing independence by providing opportunities for classroom jobs: putting things away, pouring milk, washing hands, and choosing materials and activities during center time. Many opportunities are provided to increase a child’s ability to communicate by developing active listening and expressive language skills.
Throughout the day children make self-directed (but carefully guided choices), participate in small groups, take part in circle time, and build the confidence needed to try new things. Children enjoy free play to allow creativity and imagination to flourish. Teachers facilitate opportunities for children to engage in reading, writing, listening, and speaking using poems, finger plays, puppets, singing, and rhyming.
The development of language, math, and science is emphasized through whole-group work and encouraged during center time. Thematic units are developed to encourage children to investigate new skills and ideas. As children show an interest in potty training, teachers partner with parents to help accomplish this important milestone with pride. A consistent approach and an encouraging environment are the keys to successful potty training, supporting both children and their families with care and concern.
DayCare Program is for children above age 2yrs.Our goals is to give children a sense of self-worth by helping them develop at their own individual pace while learning basic skills. We want the children to feel confident and secure enough to explore and grow in a stimulating educational and social environment.
We are committed to promoting and supporting all aspects of a child’s growth in an atmosphere of respect. We believe that children must be nurtured in a warm, happy and safe environment where every child feels comfortable, relaxed, and secure. As well, this environment provides for an enriched learning atmosphere that will challenge the child’s insatiable desire to explore, discuss, discover and create.
