Get Set Program

(2.5 to 3 years old)*

The Malvern School Get Set Program provides children with learning activities perfect for their “get ready, get set, and go” stage. Get Set is one of our signature early childhood education programs** where children concentrate on independence and self-help skills. Our teachers provide personal attention during this exciting and active transitional period from toddlerhood to preschool.

*Age ranges are approximate. **The Malvern School Curriculum is fully aligned with State Early Learning Standards.

Advancing cognitive abilities such as classification, sequencing, patterning, and letter and number concepts.

Development of physical skills that continue to improve hand-eye coordination and large and small muscle strength with activities such as running, skipping, climbing, hopping, cutting, zippering, buttoning, and grasping.

Social/emotional well-being with an emphasis on sharing, empathy, problem-solving, cooperative play, appropriate expression, and management of feelings.
