Yearlong Programs for 2s and 3s

Preschool Alternatives for 2s and 3s

2s Together

2s Together is a year — long program that provides a gradual separation experience for two-year olds.

Parents and caregivers actively participate in the program with their children. Beginning in mid-October, the separation process gradually takes place. Adults and their two-year- olds enjoy being part of a consistent group as they learn new skills and become more independent. The curriculum provides age-appropriate activities, including free play, art, creative movement, music, circle time, story time, cooking and more. The program encourages self-discovery in a relaxed and nurturing environment. Outdoor play on 92Y's rooftop playground is an integral part of their experience, weather permitting.

Parents are invited to attend monthly evening meetings with the director and Parenting Center staff on timely issues such as separation, toilet training, encouraging independence and preschool admissions.

For more information, call Parenting Center Director Sally Tannen at 212.415.5611.

Parenting Center participants receive priority. Children must be 2 years, 4 months to 2 years, 10 months old in September.

2s Together: 3 Day Program

2s Together’s 3-day program is a year-long program that provides a gradual separation experience for older two-year-olds.

Our three-day-a-week program gives older twos an opportunity to meet more often. Initially, parents and caregivers actively participate in the program with their children. Then, separation is tailored to the needs of the child. Later in the year, this older group meets with specialists in areas such as music and dance. The children enjoy being a part of a consistent group as they learn new skills and become more independent. The curriculum provides age-appropriate activities, including free play, art, creative movement, music, circle time, story time, cooking and more. The program encourages self-discovery in a relaxed and nurturing environment. Outdoor play on 92Y's rooftop playground is an integral part of their experience, weather permitting.

January 2s Together

We are excited to offer a new section of 2s Together called January 2s.

This is a gradual separation program which means that every child must be accompanied by an adult who will participate fully with the child until we begin the separation process in late February. In order to make an easy transition, we are requiring that your child be registered in either a Parkbench or 2s Days class in the Fall. Your child needs to be 2 years, 4 months by January 1. Please call the Parenting Center for more information about this exciting new program: 212.415.5609.

Wed & Fri, Jan-Jun, 9:15-11:15 am

3s Together

3s Together is a program that encourages exploration, creativity and imaginative play for young three-year-olds.

3s Together is a wonderful alternative to nursery school. The children participate in a full range of activities, including free play, art, music, cooking and science. Outdoor play on 92Y's rooftop playground is an integral part of every afternoon. Later in the year, your child will learn exciting new skills from experts in music and dance.

A few spots are still available! For more information, call Parenting Center Director Sally Tannen at 212.415.5611.

Parenting Center participants receive priority. Children must be between 2 years, 10 months to 3 years, 4 months in September.
