The twos classrooms are places where children develop a love of learning and become confident in the context of separation and individuation. It provides a safe, stimulating and loving environment that allows children to develop a sense of self and autonomy. We work on independence, including self-help and self-care skills, in a gentle classroom setting.
In the twos children are prepared with core foundational skills that they take with them as they progress through school. These foundational skills include core social, play and self-regulatory skills. For example, children learn to become confident in the context of separation from their primary caregiver(s), begin to play cooperatively and symbolically, learn how to resolve conflict in a prosocial manner, and form a sense of community and belongingness in their small group.
The Red Room integrates routines that help children feel safe and secure as well as a sense of mastery over their environment. Children are able to actively explore their classroom environment with a variety of materials including clay, paint, play dough, sand and water.
