September was an exciting month for this group of 2 year olds. They needed very little introduction to how things work at LCP as 5 of the 10 children in the class are the 2nd or 3rd sibling to come to Loomis Community Preschool. Those that were new to Loomis Community Preschool quickly learned the ropes and soon felt right at home. The first week at school they all got to work making collages, painting pictures, playing with play dough, and navigating the play yard.
Even though at 2 years old most children engage in parallel play (playing alongside one another) they no doubt enjoy the opportunity to be around each other. They begin to watch each other and copy one another.
They find ways to interact with one another such as placing their snack in a friends “trunk” while they are taking a ride.
They even defy the odds of developmental norms and sit and listen to an entire story.
