Twos

The Léman Twos Program is designed to ignite the curiosity and wonder of young children, and prepare them for academic and social/emotional success in a nurturing, play-based classroom environment. Under the expert guidance of our talented Early Childhood faculty, two-year-olds at Léman foster their independence and confidence through inquiry-based exploration of a range of materials and manipulatives across literacy, math, art, science and music. Our play-based program is designed to cultivate a love of learning, build a strong sense of community and belonging, and partner with parents during the most influential time in a child's development.

To provide families with flexibility and offer developmentally-appropriate programming tailored to each child, we offer both Drop Off and Grown Up and Me program based on children's age and developmental milestones. The Twos Program provides an educational pathway to Léman's ongoing Early Childhood and Lower School Program, where increasing academic rigor and special classes are offered to further hone students' skills, passions, and interests.

Igniting Curiosity

Our Twos Program sets the foundation for learning in an inquiry-based environment where children foster a love of coming to school and build the academic and social skills they need for success in a future full-day preschool environment. Léman faculty expertly guide our young learners through this magical time in their development.

Early Literacy

We build the foundation of pre-literacy skills in our Twos curriculum through daily interactive storytime, building conceptual understanding through the introduction of new vocabulary in thematic units, and surrounding children with a print-rich environment and exposure to letterform and sound.

Mathematics & Science

Twos are introduced to the concepts of counting and patterning, which build the foundation for strong mathematical skills. Using a variety of sensory materials ranging from paint and Play-doh to beads and water, Twos make connections and begin to understand cause and effect, a foundational science skill.

Social Studies

At two years of age, children begin to understand the world as concentric circles around them. We introduce the concept of community in our Twos classroom, starting with a “study of me” followed by our classroom community and family, to help children understand their important place in our world and those who share it with us.

Fine & Gross Motor Development

As a precursor to becoming a strong reader and writer, Twos develop their fine motor skills through exploration with a range of materials including paint, markers, crayons and beads. In addition, we help Twos navigate learning spatial awareness and development of fundamental tumbling skills in our renovated playspace for toddlers.

Music

Building music literacy is core to the Léman academic program. Through daily song and movement, Twos apply a full kinesthetic approach to growing their music skills. We use song to build community and a sense of belonging in our classroom, as well introduce the foundational skills of rhythm and beat.
