3 Year Old Program / New Part-Time Programs Available

Three year olds continue to learn primarily through experimentation and hands-on exploration.  A daily routine with teacher initiated activities that promote hands on experiences and child initiated play in interest areas gives our three year olds a balanced day of learning fun.  Thematic lesson plans are developed with children’s interests in mind to meet the developmental and academic objectives for this age level: fine motor, cognitive, language, gross motor and social emotional domains.

Much of the critical thinking at this level is achieved through social interactions and problem solving.  Our three year olds are stimulated to communicate their needs, wants and feelings.  They gain self confidence and build a strong self esteem as they are encouraged to be more independent in their self-care and routine activities.

In the preschool classrooms, we begin to focus on the English Language and developing a solid social and school vocabulary.  Work habits are also established through table and early literacy activities on a daily basis.  Creativity is explored in art experience, open ended activities and pretend play.  The balance of a structured routine that allows for individuality, creativity and child initiated exploration is the key to our successful Prek-3 program.
