2 Year Old Class

Two year old child
Philosophy

Our philosophy is that children learn and grow through play and socialization.  As our two year olds are experiencing the first year of preschool, we emphasize providing a warm and nurturing environment.

For Two's, our main goal is to provide a friendly, structured class so your child will build self-confidence in the preschool setting.

Enrichment

Yuri Shibata, Certified Music Therapist, provides weekly music classes.

Wright Memorial Librarian, Karen Mills, visits and reads to the class and leads fun activities.  

Lutheran Church of Our Savior’s Pastor, Stefan Rickman, and Youth Director, Miss Margaret Clinch, meet with the students for a fun chapel time.

Discipline

Our classroom's policy of discipline is based on positive reinforcement of good behavior.  This is designed to ensure every child the best possible learning environment.

Our goal is to instill in each child a sense of self-discipline and responsibility for themselves.  If a "calm down time" is needed, myself or my assistant Mrs. Moore will direct the child to the designated area and gently talk to the child about the behavior and the reasons for the "calm down time".
