Two Year Old Program

The two year old program introduces our youngest learners to being in school. In the twos, the class size will be no more than 8 children with 2 teachers. The small size allows for each teacher to provide dedicated one-to-one time with your child. The children begin their day with circle time, where they will learn about shapes and colors, by using interactive activities, singing songs, hearing stories and dancing to music. The two year old curriculum is based on units and themes, so your child may spend the week learning about the zoo while making animal prints with paint, cooking “monkey bread” in our kitchen, or designing a lion mask with crayons and yarn. Each activity selected is specifically designed to help introduce your child to subjects such as science, art and math, while learning language and social concepts.

Outside playtime is an exciting time for our two year olds. Located in a rural setting, children explore the outdoors, discover its creatures and learn the importance of ‘being kind to” our environment. This is where they will develop their physical motor skills while climbing, swinging, and running. In the classroom, your two year old will enjoy playtime with friends while learning how to share, take turns and develop their language skills. We are so excited to welcome our two year old friends to St. James’ Preschool!
