Teachers Guide Behavior & Social-Emotional Development

2-year-olds don’t need as much support as toddlers, but they are not yet fully-verbal 3-year-olds, either. At this age, the Conscious Discipline® program focuses on naming emotions, making decisions, and self-regulation. Teachers remain active participants in your child’s social-emotional growth.

Safe & Secure For Your Peace Of Mind

Modern security measures keep your kiddo protected every day. Controls at the main entrance and classrooms limit who has access to the children. Internal-use-only security cameras, fenced outdoor play areas, and CPR-trained teachers add an extra layer of security.

Supportive Teachers & Low Ratios Equal Success

In the 2s class, 1 teacher to 6 children allows teachers greater flexibility to personalize lessons that meet your child’s unique learning interests and needs. Onsite speech and behavior therapists provide extra support as needed.

Play-Based Curriculum Ignites Imaginations

The dynamic HighScope® curriculum actively encourages learning through doing. Whether in classroom learning centers or weekly STEAM lessons, 2’s enjoy immersive imaginary and cooperative play, open-ended inquiry, lessons in cause and effect, and much much more.

Music Enrichments Get Them Singing

Music enrichments have your kiddo moving and grooving every day. In addition to daily classroom music time, children attend onsite classes with a music teacher! These lessons include the basics of singing, melody, and rhythm accompanied by guitar.

Classroom Design Promotes Indoor Play & Active Discovery

Learning centers in every room promote independent play and open-ended active discovery. Children have the freedom to explore, experiment, try new things, and direct their own learning in cooperation with peers and friends.

Outdoor Play Gives Your Child A Daily Dose Of Nature

Big kids at last! 2’s test their emerging strength and motor control on play structures, climbers, and turf! They run, jump, climb, and tumble in age- and skill-appropriate ways and enjoy having more responsibility in the gardens.

Included Meals & Snacks Power Peak Playtime

An onsite chef prepares delicious breakfasts, lunches, and snacks in a commercial kitchen. Healthy options incorporate the kids’ own garden-grown produce and cater to your child’s food allergies, sensitivities, and dietary needs.

ProCare® Connect Puts Their Day In Your Hands

You’ll love everything about the ProCare® Connect app, from real-time communication with your child’s teachers to the ability to view schedules and progress reports and ask questions. Don’t forget everyone’s favorite – pictures and videos from your child’s day!

At NMELA I never felt like my baby was a burden, task, or a number. The love they give to their kids is zero to none. Everyone knows and loves him like family. Breanna and Alyssa even helped him to take a bottle when he first started. They are amazing at communicating and extremely accommodating. The staff are well qualified and know how to treat, teach and care for babies.
