2-Year Old Preschool Class
The two-year-old curriculum will focus on fundamental skill development that will foster self-awareness, independence and positive social skills to increase their ability to participate in a group situation. This will be accomplished in a warm, safe, supportive environment with a balance of structured activities and free play (indoors and outdoors). Children will be introduced to art through the use of hands-on open-ended crafts designed to allow for exploration and creativity.
