Time with the Monkeys

About The Monkey’s Class

The Binkley two year old class is a safe, fun environment where your child will get a gentle introduction to school. We focus on learning through play! We will set your child up for success as they move on in school with:

  • A feeling of security to explore and investigate
  • A foundation in self-help, social and communication skills
  • Fundamentals in preparation for future language, cognitive and math learning

Our 2’s also enjoy music, with Mrs. Alberda, every week! Ask us about the things we do in class. We love to talk about what we do and why we do it. You might be surprised at how much thought is put into every activity in the two year old class. Similarly, we welcome parent input and involvement.

Meet the Teachers

Jamie Mastin joined the Binkley Family when her son Sam attended the Twos class in 2005. She jumped at the chance to join the staff in 2006 and became the lead teacher for the Twos in 2007. Mrs. Mastin is a native of Chapel Hill and a graduate of Guilford College in Greensboro. She loves art, music, Disney World and playing and learning with children. She thinks that two and three year olds are the coolest!

Chloe Gude received her bachelors degree in education from Appalachian State University. She has taught private violin and public orchestra programs in various settings since 2008. She enjoys working with both groups and individual students. Chloe quickly fell in love with Binkley when her daughter joined the froggies class and was thrilled to join the Binkley teaching team a year later. Originally from Burlington, Chloe has called Carrboro home since 2010. In addition to playing violin in local classical groups, she spends as much of her free time as possible outside birding and learning about the world around her.
