BASIS Independent McLean is excited to offer a Twos Program starting in the 2019-2020 school year. The full-day program will give 2-3 year olds a place to learn, grow, and play in a supportive environment that nurtures growing minds.

“Through being a part of the Two Program, children will learn about themselves and their world, and how to develop positive, constructive relationships with others in it,” says Director of Student Affairs Cassie Korik. “Opportunities to play, collaborate, and investigate together enhance children’s development and learning.”

The program lays the necessary building blocks for physical, social, emotional, and language growth, while inspiring every child to develop a love of learning. Each classroom is led by two teachers who will guide students in reaching age-appropriate milestones.

In our program, purposeful play is combined with bountiful opportunities for inquiry, and positions young learners for success as they grow and learn. The program also includes language and literacy to support oral language development; the arts including visual arts, performing arts, and music; STEM discovery; and social-emotional health.

We believe a caring community of learners is built on consistent daily routines and strong relationships. Our daily routines allow teachers to build positive, trusting relationships with every child.

“The Early Learning teachers and I are excited to share our joyful learning community with even more children,” says Interim Head of School Tiffany Conroy. “In addition to providing them with an excellent foundation for future years in the BASIS curriculum, we know our program will foster children’s natural curiosity, deepen their ability to think deeply, and help them build relationships.”
