The Two's class will spend the year learning through hands-on play and exploration. Our curriculum will support their growing abilities. The days will be filled with activities that nurture social, emotional, and cognitive growth, while allowing the children to develop their creativity, independence, and motor skills. We will build a community of care and learning that celebrates the challenges and joys of being two.

We help implement strategies for independent conflict resolution. We expand their social skills and emphasize independence. Our class activities are centered around themes from our curriculum.

The most important goals of our Four's classroom are for the children to get along well with others and become enthusiastic learners. We want the children to become independent, self-confident, curious learners who can work well with others. We are teaching them how to learn, not just in preschool, but all through their lives. We do this by creating purposeful and productive play experiences that help children grow in all areas.
Our goals are in 4 areas of development:
Social/emotional: to help children develop independence, self-confidence and self-control; follow rules and routines; make friends and learn what it is to be a part of a group.
Physical: to increase children’s large muscle skills- balancing, running, jumping, throwing and catching- and to use the small muscles in their hands to do tasks like buttoning, stringing beads, cutting, drawing and writing. (Gross motor and fine motor)
Cognitive: to acquire thinking skills such as the abilities to solve problems, to ask questions, and to think logically- sorting, classifying, comparing, counting, and making patterns- and to use materials and their imagination to show what they have learned.
Language: to use words to communicate with others, listen to and participate in conversations with others, understand the purpose of print, recognize letters and words, and being writing for a purpose.
Options for the Four's class are 4 days (M-Th) or 5 days (M-F).
Once a week, our children will participate in Chapel with our Pastor.
Our Specials include a variety of fun, engaging topics for students to explore, including Music, Movement, Art, Discovery and STEM.
