The third year of life, from 25 to 36 months, is another critical period for healthy brain development. It is the time when children gain greater control over their bodies, develop a first vocabulary and first begin to suspect that they are not the very center of the universe! As with the Infant Program, we believe two -year -olds need respect, nurturing care and individual attention. They also need a bit more challenges in their environment, plenty of opportunities to talk and interesting experiences to talk about. They need specific help in communicating their feelings and needs to the other children with whom they want to play. They need encouragement and reassurance when things do not go their way.
