We Two

Welcome to the wonderful world of the toddler years! Wheeling Country Day School offers We Two​, ​a great introduction to the parent-teacher partnership in a child’s education.

We Two provides a positive first school experience in a non-threatening environment and atmosphere so that children realize that learning is fun. They enjoy experiences in and exposure to the various areas of development that are age and stage appropriate for toddlers and to help them “grow from what they know” by aiding them in making connections.

Play is a toddler’s work, a vehicle for social, emotional, and cognitive development. We Two offers children opportunities to understand their world, interact with others, and explore their natural curiosity. The parents/caregivers provide security and support while the children experience music and movement, stories, crafts, and playtime throughout the program.

There is no one like your child! Each is unique with development taking place at individual rates. We Two is a fun, interactive, enriching environment where each child’s development is embraced and further developed. The interaction that takes place between and among the children, their caregivers, and the teacher promotes a sense of accomplishment and growth. My goal is to continue to bring out the natural love of learning and inquisitive nature that is the essence of the 18-month to three-year-old in a safe, caring environment.

Creative & Skill-Based Courses

In addition to the traditional subject areas, students participate in fine arts, physical education, foreign language, and technology classes. An emphasis on the fine arts has been a part of the school since its inception. Biweekly classes in art and music are highlights in the children’s experiences. Daily physical education classes enhance physical development, while the morning intramural program fosters team relationships across grade levels. Children learn to use both the library and the computer as valuable resources for information.

An Emphasis on Character Development

Character development instruction highlighting respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring, and citizenship complements the academic offerings. Each teacher weaves this special program into the class’s regular curriculum.

Technology & Culture

While being part of the Wheeling Country Day School community, children prepare for an increasingly global, technological society with language and culture classes as well as technology instruction. In addition to studying Spanish and Japanese, students explore the rich cultural heritage represented by the school’s families. Special school-wide and classroom activities throughout the year expand this understanding of the relationship between self and community. At the same time, students receive computer instruction preparing them for the world’s technology and their participation in it.

Before & Aftercare Programs

Our before and aftercare programs are designed to help the student and the parent. Drop your students off early or pick them up a bit later and feel comfortable knowing they are safe and still learning.
