2-Year-Old Class

  • Our primary goal in the 2-year-old classroom is to help the children learn how much Jesus loves them. Our days are filled with fun as we provide ample time for children to learn through play and interaction with the teachers and their classroom friends.

    Students will:

    • Sing songs.
    • Play on their own and with others.
    • Make crafts.
    • Learn about Jesus.
    • Learn about colors.
    • Learn how to be good listeners.
    • Learn how to interact with others in appropriate ways.
    • Learn how to follow directions.
    • Practice their fine motor skills.
    • Practice their gross motor skills.

    Sample Daily Schedule

    9 a.m. // Doors Open

    The main school doors are open from 8:50 – 9:05 a.m. Doors to the classroom open at 9. Help your child place their belongings in their cubby, get a hug or high five from the teacher, and head into the classroom. Be sure to check the board in the drop-off area for any announcements about the day.

    9 - 9:50 // Free Play and Art

    Students have a chance to explore the classroom and play with each other. Teachers work with students individually on an art project during the play time.

    Put away the toys and art supplies. Wash everyone’s hands and work area.

    The teacher will read a Bible story to the students and sing some songs.

    10:10 - 10:35 // Gym or Outside Time

    If the weather is nice, we’ll play outside on our all-natural playground. If not, it’s off to the gym for fun with trikes, balls, running and more.

    10:35 - 10:55 // Grace and Snack

    Students have opportunity throughout the year to bring a snack to share with the class. Please pack a healthy one! We’ll pray together, thank our friend for bringing snack, and dig in.

    10:55 - 11:20 // Free Play and Art

    More time to hang out and play or finish art projects from earlier in the morning.

    11:20 - 11:30 // Story and Goodbyes

    We end the day with a story and get ready for pickup. Don’t forget to grab the take-home materials in your child’s cubby!
