Two-Year-Old Playgroups meet either five, three or two days each week, depending on the schedule you choose at registration. There is also the option of the full-day two-year-old program which includes nap time, free choice time, and story-time. The full-day program allows an easy adjustment for the child needing to remain with his/her teacher and in his/her classroom until the end of the school day. Our two-year-old classrooms are located at the Tiger Tots Campus.
The Two–Year–Old Program encourages the growth of independence and social awareness, sensory exploration, the development of physical skills, and language development. Children play in planned indoor and outdoor environments designed to provide a variety of materials to explore.
For two–year–olds, it can take some time for the child to be totally comfortable in the group environment, to seek out teachers for support and to develop increased peer social skills. To ease this transition at the beginning of each semester, a parent or other consistent caregiver may remain in the classroom with the child until the teaching staff indicates that a separation from this primary adult is appropriate and can be comfortably accomplished.
