Deepening social / emotional, language / literacy, and math skills through purposeful play and small and large group learning experiences.

Our Twos classroom is a vibrant and engaging environment where young learners embark on a journey of discovery and development. We believe in nurturing each child's unique potential while fostering a strong foundation for future success. 

Intentional interactions in our twos room might look like:

Language and Literacy: Reading aloud stories and engaging in conversations, using rich vocabulary and encouraging children to ask questions.  Singing songs, playing letter-matching games, and introducing letter sounds through hands-on activities. Providing ample opportunities for scribbling, drawing, and dictating stories to an adult recorder.
Social and Emotional Learning:  Labeling and validating children's emotions, setting clear boundaries, and providing opportunities to practice self-regulation strategies. Encouraging turn-taking, sharing, and collaborative play. Reading stories about empathy, discussing feelings, and engaging in role-playing.
Math: Singing number songs, playing counting games, and using everyday objects to demonstrate quantity. Developing spatial awareness and shape recognition. Building with blocks, playing shape-sorting games, and describing the location of objects in space. Posing simple problems, providing materials for exploration, and encouraging children to experiment and find solutions. 

STEAM concepts are integrated into every aspect of our program, stimulating curiosity and laying the groundwork for future learning. 

 We achieve this through:

  • Literacy Exploration: Using a variety of books, poetry, and storytelling to introduce children to the wonders of language and literature. Incorporating activities that encourage children to explore the sounds and shapes of letters, helping them develop the foundational skills they need to become strong readers and writers.
  • Math in Everyday Life: We believe that math is all around us, and we strive to show children how they can use math to solve problems and make sense of the world. Whether they are counting objects, sorting shapes, or comparing sizes, our students are constantly engaging with mathematical concepts in a fun and engaging way. 
  • Science & Exploration: Encouraging children to ask questions, make observations, and explore the world around them. Through hands-on experiments and sensory play, children engage with scientific concepts in a tangible way.
  • Arts & Creativity: Providing activities like painting, sculpting with playdough, and dramatic play where children can express themselves and explore their imaginations in a safe and nurturing environment.
