This program begins our preschool atmosphere. We work on numbers 1-10, letters, shapes, sign language, social and emotional development, colors, large and small motor skills, self-feeding, sitting and listening skills. These activities provide a way for our children to expand their social, emotional, physical and cognitive abilities. Repeating routines give toddlers a sense of stability and comfort because they know what each day will involve. Children will engage in arts and crafts, sensory exploration and play with friends. They will learn to follow directions, share and how to lead and follow. They will also enjoy listening to nursery rhymes and Bible stories. Potty training may be introduced too depending on the development of the child. The child will have the opportunity to learn about themselves as well as being a part of a large group.

Brittany Glass, Lead Teacher of Wee 1’s
Brittany has been with Heaven's Elect Christian Learning Center since 2013. She has taken several online child development classes specializing in infant and toddler care and has over 8 years of experience working with children.
Caring for children has always been a passion of Brittany’s. She believes that every child deserves to be loved, and spoiled (just a little). Brittany does her best to find something incredible about every child in her care, and treats them as if they were her own.
Outside of work Brittany enjoys spending time with her husband and her new baby, Adaline. She likes to read, knit, fish, and go camping.
This classroom is very active with lots of activities to enjoy such as nursery rhymes, Bible stories, and arts and crafts. They will continue to work on counting to 10 and begin to recognize numbers. A new letter is introduced weekly to help them see and recognize their name by the end of the year. Shapes, colors, and sign language are continued as it is in all of our classrooms. The children will continue to grow socially, physically, emotionally, and cognitively. Potty training may be introduced too depending on the development of the child.
Desirae Benn, Lead Teacher of 2Cute
Desirae has been with Heaven’s Elect since 2018, before that she completed her Child Development Practicum here in 2017. She is currently working towards a Child Development Associates Credential and has over 3 years of experience working with children.
For two year olds, it is important to provide a stimulating atmosphere in which children can learn and grow in all areas of life. Ensuring that no child is left behind, Desirae knows how important it is to focus on each child’s individual strengths and to learn their weaknesses.’ Understanding differing abilities allows her to teach the way each child learns. Children thrive on schedules and routines, and it is important that children have realistic expectations and boundaries.
Desirae’s relationship with God is ever growing and she believes that His love and devotion has helped shaped her into the person, teacher, and mom she is today.
Desirae enjoys traveling, sightseeing, boating, and crafting with her young daughter. She is also an avid Pinterest fan, which spills out into her classroom curriculum and décor.
