There is a lot of fun going on in the Older 2’s classroom. The Older 2’s can have up to 12 students at one time, led by two loving teachers who are trained through the Traveling Arkansas’ Professional Pathways Developmental Training program. This developmental age group is very unique: they are establishing an independent identity, are curious about everything, are developing a longer attention span, and they are equipped with a wide variety of very strong emotions. The older toddler is said to have an average of a moderate conflict once every 3 minutes and major conflicts three times every hour. We expect it, embrace it, and are not upset by it. With their strong emotions, they show deep love for their teachers, and we love them just as strongly right back.
