Our Treasure Trunk Twos & Threes Program inspires curiosity, exploration, communication, imagination, and positive social and emotional interactions. At Treasure Trunk Theatre we believe in child-led, creative play based learning. Our program will introduce your child to a classroom setting with a gentle separation process for families and their kiddos.
A mixed-age classroom for our early preschool-aged learners provides an array of benefits for both the younger and older students. The younger students build confidence and gain new and exciting language and behavioral skills. Our older students build a strong sense of responsibility and leadership skills in the classroom community.
Each day, we will start the morning with open play in our beautiful space with toys and activities that support imaginative play as well as fine and gross motor skills. Children are also invited to work on an art project during this time. We then gather on the rug for circle time with morning hellos to encourage expression, a story and live music. We then wash hands and provide a healthy snack for the children to share. Children then transition back to choice time where they will continue to have self-directed play in our space. A sensory table, play kitchen, library, and age appropriate toys will be available for their discovery. We end our morning with a closing circle time with music and goodbyes.
For the first few weeks, grown-ups will join the class as needed until their child feels confident and comfortable being in the classroom without their presence. Our caring teachers offer encouragement and a nurturing environment where the children feel safe and secure within their classroom before the separation.
Children at this age are exploding with power to communicate, to move purposefully, to assert their independence and individuality, and to control their important bodily functions. Our nurturing teachers are there to support them in their growth and development and will provide weekly updates for parents. Come explore and play with our Twos & Threes at the Trunk!
