2nd year

A year discovering who I am. The need for an adult as intermediary is diminishing.

Some children sit back, moving into activities only when they are comfortable, while others fling themselves headlong into action by risking all. Mistakes are celebrated as learning opportunities. Four is a time of uncertainty, growing and testing. In the last months of their second year the shyest child joins with joy and confidence and the more boisterous child is now aware of boundaries. They begin to participate as a focused and constructive team member. The teacher ratio is 10:1.
