Chipmunks and Bunnies (2-3 years)

  • Age: usually 2 to 3 years of age in September.
  • Teachers: two Chipmunk teachers and two Bunny teachers are available during the majority of the day.
  • Group size: no more than eight children are in each classroom.
  • Our excellent teacher-student ratio allows nurturing attention that is pivotal in toddlers' development.
  • Chipmunk and Bunny teachers provide empowering opportunities to foster autonomy while also providing a supportive hug when needed.
  • The children in this group continue to work on skills listed in the Cub room description.
  • This is a stage of development where interactive play becomes much more important and identification of emotions is also emerging.
  • As the children’s expressive language emerges, avenues for self-expression are provided through art projects, dramatic play games and music/movement opportunities.
  • A loving and accepting staff provides quality literature and visual displays that all children can relate to in a language-rich environment.
  • We emphasize modeling of conflict resolution and encourage respect among classmates.
  • The Chipmunks and Bunnies will also begin to experience mastery through age-appropriate puzzles, manipulatives and outdoor equipment.
