Group 2

“My two little girls, who had previously been hesitant about going to school, literally RUN into school in the morning - eager to start their day at PUNS!”
— Kristy Hopfinger, Group 2 & 3 Mom
  • Group 2 is a fun-filled and engaging program specially designed for our students moving up from our Half Pints program, as well as for children who are new to preschool. Group 2 will provide your child with an engaging, play-based preschool experience. Our day is carefully designed around the philosophy that children learn best through active participation and play. We focus on learning the rhythm and routine of the preschool day, positive socialization, and opportunities for both guided and independent play. Academic skills are taught in a developmentally appropriate context, and at each child's unique pace. Independence and choice are fostered through a variety of approaches, in which teachers adapt classroom play experiences to best meet the needs of all learners. Our daily schedule includes a balance of:

-Literacy Concepts: letter recognition and formation

-Mathematical Concepts: number recognition, counting, patterning

-Science Concepts: making predictions, asking questions

-Creative and Critical Thinking: daily art projects, dramatic play, problem-solving

-Speaking and Listening Skills

-Gross and Fine Motor Skills: Weekly P.E. Class, daily playground time; playdough, cutting, working with small manipulatives

-Cooperative and Independent Play

  • Group 2 meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9:15-11:45
