2 Yr Olds
Our Two-Year-Old class is presently offered in the morning from 9:00 – 11:30 on Monday and Tuesday. This class is limited to 10 children. We ask that your child be two years old by September 1 of the year in which they are enrolled. All classes begin the week after Labor Day and end the week prior to Memorial Day
The primary objectives of the Two-Year-Old class is to help each child develop a good self-image and to instill a genuine love of learning. To accomplish this we provide repeated opportunities for each child to engage in problem solving and thinking activities, to discover and explore. The children are given diverse choices that can lead to independence, self-control, self-confidence and a sense of responsibility. Our program provides a rich environment that considers each child’s total development, individual needs and interests.
Specifically, our Two-Year-Old class focuses on such exciting areas as: language development and blossoming speech; the beginning of creative/imaginary play; the establishment of independent identities and a beginning awareness of others and their feelings. During this year many children are in the process of toilet training. For most children this will be their first experience away from home for any length of time. We provide a safe, warm, nurturing environment in which children can develop trusting relationships. An atmosphere devoted to children!
Each day will include a variety of the following: art experiences, singing and rhythm activities, finger plays, dramatic play, stories, games, development of self-help skills and physical activities. At this age, we also begin a strong emphasis on the language skills that serve to help children interact socially. Skills are developed through both active and quiet structured play.
We hope that your child will be joining us for this busy and fun-filled year.
