Teddy Bear Class – Ages 2-4

Program Overview, 2 – day class

At SPCNS, the “Teddies” class focuses on developing socialization skills such as appropriate behaviors, problem-solving skills, dealing with peers and adults, etc.  You can watch as the student/teacher relationship develops and the parent/child separation becomes increasingly positive.

Your child will learn to function in a classroom environment and the difference between acceptable and unacceptable behavior.  This exposure will result in an expanded attention span, empowerment when making choices, and a willingness to face new challenges.  Through the use of play the children experience various young child concepts.
