About our Transition Care 

2 ½ - 3 ½ Years

The transition class is all about getting ready for formal education. Teachers continue to teach the children how to be more independent as they carry out their daily tasks like going to the bathroom, cleaning themselves, washing their hands, choosing work, and keeping their classroom and school environment organized, clean, and tidy.

If your child is ready to begin potty training, the teachers will work closely with the parents and the child toward a stress-free transition out of diapers. And speaking of reducing stress, we schedule restful naps from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM each day using in-classroom mats.
