Three Year Olds
The three year old class is the beginning of our preschool program. The children are verbal, inquisitive and ready to learn! Children are exposed to basic concepts and skills such as color and shape identification, letter and name recognition, counting and sharing are reinforced through daily activities.
The classroom is divided into learning centers that allow for independent exploration and experimentation. Hands-on activities and free play dominate the day. Children are encouraged to make their own choices and learn important social skills such as sharing, waiting for a turn and working together.
Songs, stories and interactions with teachers and peers encourage language development throughout each day. Children are encouraged to use their words to solve problems, to tell stories in their own way and to describe things they have created. A print-rich environment shows the children how spoken language can be written for others to read.
