Our three year old program offers children between the ages of 3-4 the opportunity to explore and investigate the exciting and diverse world around them – all while practicing cooperative play skills, investigative methods and conflict resolution. Our caring teachers encourage developmental growth and gently guide each child along their own unique learning path. Our well-designed, play-based curriculum supports learning throughout the areas of physical, social, emotional, science, math, arts, music, language and literacy.
Classroom learning centers reinforce concepts such as:
Dry erase tables and markers allow children to practice writing in a fun, colorful and creative way. Teacher guided science discussions often involve hands-on experiments and our approach to art goes far beyond coloring sheets. We pride ourselves on making learning an adventure!
Features of the Three’s Program include:
- Creating, updating and enhancing learning “centers”
- Providing a variety of age appropriate materials including drawing and writing materials in each center so that children can “document” their experiences
- Daily activities and pictures are relayed throughout the day with our parent friendly brightwheel app
- Allowing time in the classroom schedule for teacher-facilitated discussion and reflection on experiences
- Teachers trained in CPR, Early Childhood development and Health and Safety issues
- Staff that are extensively screened and subject to State and Federal fingerprinting and background checks
- Incorporating teaching strategies that encourage children to THINK about their play
- Implementing lesson plans that encourage learning across the five domains; physical, intellectual, language, emotional / social and approaches to learning
- Promoting environmental education by using nature-inspired play spaces that contain opportunities for pedaling, climbing, running, swinging, gardening, building and dramatic play
