The Twos Group


Building on the success of a previous program, the Twos Group offers distinctive learning opportunities for both parents and children. On Wednesdays, parents will participate in discussions intended to help them gain insight into their parenting choices, to foster independence and healthy separation, to promote understanding of their child’s unique temperament and to explore Jewish identity. On Fridays, children will participate in a stimulating structured playgroup, emphasizing social interaction. Led by experienced teachers, the activities will include enhancing music appreciation, arts and crafts, and celebrating Jewish holidays and traditions. Parents will have the opportunity to observe their children and learn from immediate unfolding situations. (The Twos Group is for children ages 22 months to 27 months.)
