In our 2s Program, we help your child adjust to a classroom setting, learn how to play with others and improve communication skills.
At 2 years of age, children should begin to demonstrate increasing self-awareness and self-regulation, improved use of coping skills, interaction with peers and adults, and sharing of feelings.
They should be able to play alongside other children and develop awareness of their feelings. They should engage in conversation, understand questions and answer them, and learn to demonstrate active listening.
They will become aware of spoken language and recognize that symbols have meaning. They will participate in imitative reading and show interest in concepts such as matching and sorting.
They also will begin showing improved hand-eye coordination.
A Sample Morning for Our 2’s Program
After breakfast, the children gather for Circle Time. They sing their Good Morning song; learn about shapes, colors and the weather; and discuss the letter of the day. A is for apple!

Activities to Try At Home
Here are activities we use and encourage parents to reinforce at home:
Ask your child if s/he wants to try to do something himself before offering to do it for her/him.
Make Time to Read
Point out interesting pictures and ask the child to point to the pictures that go with what you are reading.
