Two’s


Young Two’s

CLCC2015_1124_033Children in the young 2-year-old classroom are very curious and love to explore. They love music and movement and sensory table fun. It is at this age that your child experiences their world through hands-on experiments to learn how things work. In this classroom we will help your child focus on learning how to do things independently and how to play with others. At this age your child’s vocabulary is expanding through the exploration of books, songs and finger plays. This is a very busy group! Your child will be having lots of fun while learning in a loving and caring environment.
