Age 2 Sparrows*
As your child begins his/her very first experience in a school environment, we know that socialization is one of the most important skills to learn. In the Age 2 Sparrows program, our teachers guide children in activities that promote self-awareness and a positive self-image. They also focus on sharing and compassion. The exposure to routine, listening and following directions helps ensure a smooth transition to the next level of Preschool.
