Rainbows: The class option for our youngest students, ages 2 & 3. Children must be 2 years old by August 1st. This class is available 2 days a week T-Th, or 3 days per week M-W-F. Children do not have to be potty trained to join this class. This is primarily a social and emotional class. Children work through separating from parents and learning to take direction from adults outside of the family. They learn how to play with others and develop social skills. Children also work on self-help skills such as potty training, hand washing and taking responsibility for our belongings. We also prioritize both fine motor and gross motor development. Academically we focus on basic colors and shapes along with appreciation of literature. We are a play based environment and our goal is to ready them for their future years of school. The maximum number of children in this class is 10 with 2 teachers.
