A two year old is all about ME! The CUMP Toddler Program fosters and cultivates that new sense of independence. Self-help skills are important as we begin to use the potty. Hanging up their book bags, putting on their coats and washing their hands are all skills Twos Program strengthens. Cooperative play is emerging and the teachers model how to take turns, share and work together with our friends. We continue our study of basic colors and shapes, but extend it by sorting and patterning using these skills. Numbers and letters are beginning to be pulled out especially in the first letter of all our names. We are discovering the parts of a book, concepts of print during story-time and the highlighting of songs and fingerplays on chart paper.
