Freshman & Sophmore Lane

Growth and Development
Around or about 2 years of age, your child will grow and develop at a tremendous capacity.  They will exhibit an increased ability to learn new concepts and skills.  Their verbal language skills will multiply at an accelerating rate.  They usually respond well to critical thinking activities and experience such delight in accomplishing tasks successfully.  Therefore, W.I.S.E. Academy has a curriculum that will enhance and develop their learning opportunities in the following areas:  social, emotional, physical and cognitive.  All children learn and grow at their own pace.  

The ability to verbally communicate along with independence and exploration is very important.  In a nurturing, loving and secure environment, your child will be able to acquire these necessary skills.  These skills will prepare them for their preschool years, while having fun learning.
