Tiddlywinks: Caterpillars & Butterflies

Director: Alise Lanaux

Max Enrollment: Caterpillars 8 Children; Butterflies 16 Children

TW2022At Tiddlywinks, the magical year of two is celebrated as children learn through play and are provided with the tools and confidence needed for a life-long love of learning! Each day, children experience meaningful opportunities in our indoor/outdoor classroom that foster creativity and imagination through science, dramatic and sensory play, manipulatives, outdoor exploration, and art.

Through play, children are naturally exposed to the concepts like colors, shapes, letters, numbers, rhythm, and movement. More structured activities and routines like learning centers and circle time are introduced and our low student-teacher ratio provides children with valuable learning interactions with a focus on fostering independence and social skills by modeling, scaffolding, and teaching self-help skills.

Two year old's learn at a rapid pace and span many developmental stages, therefore our class is split into two groups, the Caterpillars and the Butterflies so that we may better meet your child's needs and interests as they grow and develop. The Caterpillars consist of our younger two's in a 3-Day program with a 4:1 ratio and a smaller class size as they transition into care for the first time without their primary caregivers. The Butterflies class consists of our older two's in a program that runs 3 days a week from August–December and then transitions to a 4-Day a week program in January. The Butterflies class still has a 4:1 ratio, but has a slightly larger class size.
