The Grasshopper Classroom. We're Ready to Explore!

Two year olds are exploding with language and are great copycats! We welcome these new skills by modeling positive behaviors and creating a literacy rich environment to grow their vocabulary!

The twos classroom is a brief period of time where children are reaching many cognitive, physical, and social milestones. This classroom program is geared towards further developing children’s confidence and independence. The teachers work patiently with children to help them learn more about themselves and how to form positive relationships with peers. Children begin to learn to express their own feelings and learn to show compassion, empathy, and sense of right and wrong. Children begin to understand turn taking, and show ability to wait and communicate to peers when it is their turn, which demonstrates social-emotional intelligence. This is also an important period for language development. Children are using more words and starting to use longer sentences. They are starting to sing on their own as well! In the Two’s classroom, children will be encouraged to use imaginative play and to use props in the dramatic play area, further developing their creative skills. While playing cooperatively, children develop authentic friendships and bonds with each other.

*Potty-training will continue in the two’s classroom in order to prepare children to use the toilet independently in the Preschool classroom. Teachers will work closely with parents to determine what works best for your child and will build on the practices that are taking place at home.
