Two Year Old Classes

Tue/Thur                           9:00 - 11:30 am,    12:15 - 2:45 pm

Age: must be Two

Ratio: 3 teachers : 12 students

Experiences in a nurturing and secure environment encourage a successful transition into a first school setting. Goals are to promote independence, positive self-esteem, socialization, early language and math acquisition, as well as fine and gross motor skills as we encourage "a lifelong love of learning."

 

This class is available in morning or afternoon intervals, which can be enjoyed together as full-day enrollment. A free play period begins the day, during which children are encouraged to participate in art and cognitive learning projects that facilitate task completion at individual developmental levels. Children then gather in a circle where stories, games, or movement activities are presented to reinforce that day's theme. A healthy snack, a second circle, and play until dismissal are how the day concludes.

 

Activities are tailored to the developmental level of two year old children who learn while having fun. Through hands-on and multi-sensory experiences, children discover the wonders of the world around them. Regular specials in Environmental Education, Physical Education, Felt Board Stories, and guest visits enhance this first school experience.

This class provides a nurturing and secure learning environment for what is a first school experience for some and a continuing education for others. Goals are to promote independence, positive self-esteem, appropriate social, language, and early math skills, as well as fine and gross motor skills while encouraging a "lifelong love of learning." 

Class begins with a free play period, during which children are encouraged to participate in art and cognitive learning projects designed for task completion at individual developmental levels. Children then gather in a circle where stories, games, or movement activities are presented to reinforce the theme of the day. A healthy snack, a second circle, and play outside until dismissal are how the day concludes.

 

All activities, individual, large, and small group, are tailored to the developmental level of children who learn through active exploration of the world around them while having fun. Regular specials in Environmental Education, Physical Education, Felt Board Stories, as well as guest visits enhance this early school experience.
