Two Year Olds

Enrolling your two-year-old in our Tuesday and Thursday morning class will open up your child’s world to a multitude of adventures! Children will have the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop through a variety of activities.  Our two-year-old program focuses on the social and emotional development of our youngest students!  Your child will grow in this loving environment that gives them a sense of comfort, safety, and confidence. Through play, your child will learn the world around them and themselves.  Our nurturing teachers will use role-play and modeling skills as they facilitate play with your children.  These activities include a wide variety of literature, gross motor play, music & dance, sensory play, and outside adventures!

Tuesday & Thursdays, 9:00-11:30



Your child will look forward to meeting their friends and teachers for our classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Theme based concepts are introduced during circle time through stories, games, songs, and dance.  Important social/emotional skills such as patience, taking turns, cooperation, using good manners, and showing respect for others are incorporated throughout the day. This classroom focuses on an emergent curriculum. Teachers plan activities on the interests of the children and help that interest to grow by creating meaningful learning experiences.  This classroom also focuses on strong fine motor development for emergent writing skills along with hands-on science experiments and sensory manipulatives.

We are pleased to offer 3- year- old children wishing to have longer days the option of enrolling in our Extended Day Program.

Monday & Wednesday 9:00-1:15,  Friday 9:00-11:45


Your child will be well prepared to enter kindergarten upon completion of our program. The children meet five days a week and are immersed in various thematic-based lessons throughout the year. Fox Hill’s emergent curriculum continues in this classroom by integrating literature, music, art, and science throughout the daily routine. Children work together in large and small group activities that enhance the theme and improve their problem-solving and fine motor skills. The focus in this classroom is pre-writing such as writing their names, reading skills such as supporting children in alphabet recognition, reading comprehension such as story sequencing, and mathematical skills such as using numbers, shapes, and colors.

Our author of the month, in-house field trips such as the Fox Chapel Fire Department and Petting Zoo, nature programs, playground time, and walks offer wonderful learning opportunities for our children.  The teachers work closely with surrounding kindergarten classrooms to gain the most knowledge on how to prepare your child for kindergarten success!
