Playful 2s


2 Day program: Monday/Wednesday OR Tuesday/Thursday

The children in the Twos will learn and experience that school is a fun way to spend the morning. We create a safe atmosphere for the children to explore through wonderful sensory experiences, messy art projects, songs, stories, snacks, and gross-motor fun. Socially, the children will be guided into learning how to take turns, encouraged to engage in age-appropriate sharing and group listening skills. In our twos-program, we help foster the playful atmosphere that builds healthy learning patterns.
