The twos class is a drop off program that offers an emergent style developmentally appropriate experience that will support young children as they transition into other prekindergarten programs.  The program meets from 9:30am - 12pm with extended day options through 3pm.

Parents may choose the number of days they would like to enroll their child up to 5 days a week.   The class ratio is 2 teachers to a maximum of 8 children.  Children must be turning 2 by the beginning of September, or they may start on their second birthday if there is capacity at that time to accommodate your child.  This program may also be chosen for families whose children are turning three after the beginning of September.
