Beach Babies Child Care

Lewes, Rehoboth, Milford, & Townsend


Two-Year-Old Program

Two-year-olds are a very busy group both physically and verbally. Our two-year-old program raises the critical relationship building that occurs at this age supporting intellectual and social development.

Manipulative toys are used to promote eye-hand coordination. Teachers emphasize daily routines and social interaction through family-style meals and other small group activities. Picture books, songs, and skits are used to increase color, shape and number recognition.

Teachers organize dramatic play activities so children can dress up and role play. This develops new skills, such as problem-solving, self-care routines and conversation. Children are frequently read stories to build listening skills and are often asked to repeat the stories to develop memory recognition. To facilitate parental involvement, teachers provide daily sheets to document and share the children’s experiences.
