The curriculum for our 2s class begins with a focus on physical development. In this age group, children begin to master general motor skills and movement. The wide range of skills and physical development occurring at this stage include gross motor, fine motor, self-help and safety skills. Children strive for independence (including potty-training) and choice-making in this age group. An orientation to discuss twos’ curriculum goals for the third year of learning is led by the school’s curriculum advisor and lead teacher.
