3 year olds

During this year our curriculum will focus on preschool topics and getting the children ready for preschool.  Our enriched preschool classrooms are designed to provide your child with many choices throughout the day, balancing daily schedules to allow for small group time, child-directed and teacher-directed activities.  While children are encouraged to participate in group activities, they are given the flexibility to learn at their own pace and in ways that are best for them.

Daily activities include:

  • Small muscle activities (playing with manipulative toys, coloring, painting, feeding themselves, using crayons and markers, shape sorting, etc.)
  • Large muscle activities (walking, running, dancing, playing with balls, etc.)
  • Social activities (interacting with other children and teachers, family events, field trips, etc.)
  • Intellectual growth activities (verbal language, singing songs, building with blocks, reading stories, writing, counting, weekly themes and lessons, etc.)
  • Emotional growth activities (providing security, building trust, meeting the needs of each child, creating a caring and nurturing environment, etc.)

Parents provide the following:

  • 2 changes of clothes in sealed plastic bag labeled with child’s name
  • Special sleeping blanket or stuffed animal (if desired)
