Two Year Olds

Program for Two Year Olds

At two years old, children are developmentally ready to engage in activities that leave them questioning ideas and wondering about new ones. They are expanding their self help fine motor skills leading to future independence and using their gross motor skills to safely take risks and interact socially during play time. At two they are seeing the world through new eyes and they are ready to experiment and explore.

The children who stay full day will have lunch followed by an approximate 2 hour rest time in their classroom. There is a school lunch option available at an additional fee or children can bring a lunch from home.


Aftercare is available from 3:00-5:30 p.m.

All students are eligible to stay for aftercare on their regularly scheduled days of school. Aftercare is intended to be a less structured, relaxing environment where the children enjoy playing in the Little Gate Park. The children may also participate in art activities, games, outdoor play and are given an afternoon snack. If your child does not attend aftercare regularly the teachers must be informed daily by a written note.
