Two-Year-Olds Schedule

We work on developing and strengthening many skills including: gross motor and fine motor, self-help, respect for others and the environment, conflict resolution, and independence. Through our environment, play experiences and activities we help your child feel safe and comfortable to explore his or her world.

We read to your child daily, starting from the first day of enrollment.
