The twos program promotes independence through a combination of child and teacher directed activities throughout the day. Self-help skills such as eating independently, potty training, hand washing, tidy toys, push in chairs, and pick their favorite activities are among the skills taught in this room. Choices and chores teach responsibility and independence. Songs, stories, signing games, and counting, matching, and sorting activities lay the groundwork for pre-reading and pre-math skills. Teachers encourage children to participate together, and in turns, so everyone feels valued while learning manners and empathy.
