Twos room Twos room

 A time of transition is the perfect phrase to describe the Cute Koalas room, as well as its curriculum. The time a child spends in the Koalas' room is the difference between starting out as a toddler and growing into a preschooler, the steps it takes to go from diapers to underwear, and laying a foundation of skills upon which they will build throughout their education.

Children in the Cute Koalas room learn through play. There are blocks and carpet toys which help them develop large muscle skills; dolls and housekeeping play to bolster social skills and relationships; puzzles, manipulatives and table toys to hone fine motor skills. Concepts such as colors, alphabet and numbers are learned through songs and word play and children become familiar with days of the week, seasons, months and holidays.

Social skills develop too, as children begin to learn the values of sharing, kindness, compassion and manners. These ideas are put into practice in the classroom by students and teachers alike, not only as social skills, but as beginning concepts of Christianity.

By the time students promote to the Perky Penguins room, they are prepared to take the next steps in their educational journey – and they’ve done it all through play and creativity.

I have been at NPCDC since 2007, but have spent many years working with children. My favorite part of working with the 2s kids is that they care about each other and are very tolerant. They are very affectionate and forgiving. I am married with 3 children, a son who is in college and a set of twin daughters. In my spare time I enjoy computers, reading, old movies and quilting with my grandmother, mother and sister.
