The Two’s and You program is a class designed especially for those families interested in parent-child participation in a beginning preschool experience for two year olds. The program will introduce and encourage both toddlers and parents to discover the world around them, together, through art, music, science, movement and more.
The Two’s and You program is a fourteen week session held in the fall and winter. Students must be two years old by the time they start school. If your child turns two mid-session, you may start at that time. Your tuition will be prorated to reflect the number of classes you will attend. Classes are held one day per week in the first classroom on the lower level of St. John’s Episcopal Church from 9:30-11 a.m. Class size limit is twelve students.
Requirements for the Two’s and You Program:
1. Each student must have a parent or caregiver attend each session with them.
2. Each family is required to bring snacks for the class at least one time during the 14 weeks.
3. Parents or caregivers will be expected to take turns setting up and cleaning up class areas as noted in the class schedule.
4. Parents or caregivers must attend the parent orientation prior to class participation.
5. As a member of our co-op preschool, each “Two’s And You” family will be required to fulfill a 1 point job as outlined on the Job Preference Sheet attached to the Application Form.
