Twos program

bigstock-Man-with-children-playing-toge-27386258(1)Our daily schedule for two-year-olds is structured to practice new learning and listening skills. Open choice encourages development of independent creativity and group dynamics. Your child will begin to identify healthy habits like hand washing, the repetition of which will become part of his or her routine before meals. He or she will have enough time during each activity to start and finish (and possibly repeat to produce mastery), promoting strong self-esteem and self-image when a job is performed fully and well, or when an attempt is made. Our staff regularly encourages our students to persist in all efforts, including potty training. Creativity time helps our students become familiar with trial and error, solving simple problems, pretend play (imagination and invention), and cooperative play.
