Your second grade child possesses the innocence of early childhood and a growing interest in testing boundaries. Our curriculum is specifically designed to strengthen your child’s social development and teach new skills. A signature of the second grade is the study of fables, which portray the highs and lows of human potential and the relationship between choices and consequences. As your child builds confidence in academic skills, these morals act as a subtle guide for social development.
