Toddler 2’s Program

Your two-year-olds have their own "Cozy Cottages" on the property. These cozy little cottages are made up of art centers, work tables, housekeeping, cooking, sand and water tables and a large play area. They even have their own playgrounds just outside their classroom for independent and group play.

 

School is a new and exciting adventure for your little ones. Our teachers help them (and you their parents) through the separation process as they learn to trust and become comfortable with other adults. Their communication skills improve rapidly as they enjoy these new experiences.

Socialization is our focus as the children learn to play together, share, clean up, and very importantly, to cooperate.

Students learn to say “please” and “thank you”, clear their place after snack, and push in theirs and others chairs.

 

Our thematic programs incorporate:

  • colors,
  • shapes,
  • vocabulary development,
  • songs,
  • the use of art materials, and
  • American Sign Language (ASL).

We enjoy enriching their lives with color, music, art, language, listening skills and friends, as we introduce them to this wonderful world which we all live in.
