Two-year-olds are filled with energy and curiosity about the world and are developing a sense of increased independence, while needing to be nurtured – making the twos “terrific,” not “terrible.” In our two-year-old room we seek to build a strong foundation for learning, while also creating a love for learning. We want each day to be a joyful time of discovery. We use play as the predominant tool for learning.
Our highly trained teachers help meet the key milestones of this important developmental stage in an environment that provides safety, freedom within boundaries, individual attention, enrichment, and praise. Character building activities take place daily
Learning Centers are designed to stimulate experiences like building and construction, dramatic play, free art, water/sand, games and puzzles, science, writing, math, and literacy. The twos love the University’s directed music classes. They also love to be read to. Teachers do this in a group or individual setting, where they interact with the children as they read.
We begin the process of emergent writing where the twos talk about their life experiences as the teacher writes down their words. The twos then draw a picture of their story. By two-and-a-half, they tell their story to the class.
The Jungle Room is known as the potty-training room. We support the toilet training process of the home and help create a plan with the parents that is consistent, positive, and manageable. The twos gain independence and confidence in learning to care for their own needs.
We believe it is essential to partner with the parent to achieve success as these little ones grow and learn. You will be kept informed of daily activities and special things your child is learning to do each day. You are always encouraged to stop by, to give advice, and to share concerns.
The only thing missing in our room is you. Come join us!
