Cooperative 2 Year Olds Program Details

Two years old by September 1

TUE/THU 8:45-11:15 AM
TUE/THU 11:45-2:15 PM

Children experience a safe and supportive environment where they can develop a sense of trust with teachers (and other adults) and be with other children.

Socially, two's are interested in other children, yet engage mostly in parallel play with their classmates. They come together at snack time, circle time, and story time as they begin to learn how to be part of a group.

Emotionally, two's are trying out new ideas and exploring their surroundings. Outdoors, a large yard allows children to move their bodies freely as well as participate in a wide variety of experiences which help them develop their gross motor skills. The outdoor environment also allows for lots of different tactile experiences: sandbox play, sensory table activities, finger-painting. A variety of open-ended art experiences encourages creativity and fine motor development, as well as sensory exploration.

Indoors, there is a dramatic play area which allows children to role play and dress up, a variety of manipulatives such as puzzles and blocks which allow children to develop their fine motor and cognitive skills, and a quiet area where children can explore books. Stories, songs, finger-plays and movement are introduced, especially at circle time.

The program is designed specifically for the developmental level of two's, and it allows parents the opportunity to share in their child’s first school experience in a safe, supportive, interactive, and engaging manner. A parent education topic will be discussed once a month during the class meeting.
