Preschool is a brand new experience for our 2s and we strive to ensure that it will be a positive one for them! This is a big year as they learn to take turns, share, and make new friends in a loving and nurturing environment. Our 2s make a craft, play on the playground and are read to daily. 2s also attend weekly music classes. We strive to teach our 2s that learning is fun by practicing colors, shapes, and counting with fun songs and active play. Highlights of the year include participation in their own informal music performance for their parents in the spring and our Mother’s Day Tea and Art Show.
Our 2-year-old program is open to children who have turned two on or before September 1st. Additionally, children in our MDO class who turn 2 years old during the school year have the opportunity to move into the 2K class when they are ready.
We have three class options available for our 2s. They can attend 2 days a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3 days a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, or all 5 days. Our 2K classroom maintains a 1:7 teacher:student ratio inside their big classroom with lots of room to move.
