BASIS Independent McLean, a private school at 8000 Jones Branch Dr. in Tysons, is planning on opening a brand new program for 2-3-year-olds next year.
The new program will offer full-day programming focused on physical, social, emotional and language growth. The program will run year-round and aim at preparing toddlers for pre-K courses.
“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,” Cassie Korik, director of student affairs, said in a press release. “Opportunities to play, collaborate, and investigate together enhance children’s development and learning.”
The classrooms will be led by two teachers focusing on maintaining consistent daily routines of education in everything from science and technology to social-emotional health.
The school is part of an international network of BASIS schools, which educate students from pre-K through 12th grade.
