Busy, controlled chaos. That's what you'll see when coming into a class of two year olds. The centers and activities are more defined than in the toddler class, but play still defines all they do. Circle times are longer and happen twice in the morning allowing for more time for literacy and music whole group activities. Potty-training is a big part of this program as children show readiness.
Parents are requested to provide a 'pull-up' type diaper allowing for ease of self-help. Teachers are cheerleaders for this process; we celebrate every success!
Introductions are made of letters as they naturally occur in the environment and labels are found everywhere. It is in this room that we begin to show that written word becomes spoken word. Language is strongly encouraged with more running conversations throughout the day. Self-control is also a large part of the curriculum as we build on the Bucket-Filling philosophy.
