Imagineers (2 year olds)
Two year olds. They can be a handful. Energetic. Curious. Talkative. And often fiercely independent.
We sometimes take a two year old’s learning skills for granted. But they’re surprisingly sophisticated. Their understanding of the world around them can be complex. But they still need the guidance and encouragement to ensure they’re motivated, self assured and well rounded. And at Imagine Nation, our role is to both assist and inform.
Our Imagineers program is designed to not only encourage your two year old’s sense of self determination but to guide them towards new discoveries and experiences. It emphasizes social skills, creative play, language development and learning games so their journey of self discovery can be as positive as it is challenging.
Each daily report we provide for you will update you on their learning in addition to meals, naps, toilet training and daily activities.
