Two and three-year-olds enjoy their increased independence and are very curious to learn new things. We take this love of learning and expand your child’s knowledge through structured play and planned activities creating a loving environment that fosters self-confidence in these newly independent students.

Jumpstart Program Highlights
- Learning Centers – Our Jumpstart classrooms use learning centers that allow children to explore a variety of subject areas. Each center features such skills as language and reading, construction, home living, math, fine motor skills, art, dramatic play, science and sensory exploration. Each area helps your children gain independence and further explore themes and concepts introduced in class with hands-on, interactive approach for preschool child development.
- Parent Communication – We understand the importance of staying connected to your child while at school. With daily updates, photos, and notifications through emails and classroom Facebook groups, our teachers take time to communicate every piece of your child’s day. Through classroom activities, special events, child assessments, and phone calls. HFYH enables and encourages our parents to be an active part of their child’s Jumpstart educational experience.
- Self-Help Skills – We encourage the development of socialization and self-help skills in our Jumpstart classes by incorporating group play and circle time, self-guided activities, and class projects, while also encouraging independent learning and choices. Children are now beginning to learn certain autonomous skills like hand washing, cleaning up after snack, zipping and unzipping one’s own jacket, and even the art of sharing and putting away toys. These tasks build confidence and independence.
- Potty Training –We understand potty training is a very important milestone in a child’s development, and it’s critical to encourage this transition when the child is ready. Typically, potty training begins in our Jumpstart program. Our staff will work with you and your child as they are learning this new skill. We will communicate their progress at school allowing potty training at home and school to be consistent.
