3 year olds
In the Pre-k3 classroom, your child will be ready for a more structured learning environment. Learning will be conducted in whole group interaction settings along with learning centers. This is an important part of development where learning to share and social skills increase and independence increases.
We will continue to implement the Highscope Curriculum in the Pre-K3 classroom. The Highscope Curriculum is considered the premier curriculum available for preschoolers and is our base for our reading, phonics, math, and science programs. Each class begins with a circle time where the focus is building a sense of community. Children sing, connect with classmates through fun activities, and make a commitment to keeping the classroom safe. Moving and Learning, Read Alouds, Literacy and Math/Science lessons are done daily. Lessons are short, theme-related and filled with hands-on applications and meaningful context.
The toys and equipment in the Pre-K3 classroom have been carefully selected for safety and to meet the developmental needs of the specific age of the children in the class. Please be sure to leave all personal toys at home. This will prevent your child’s disappointment if the personal belonging should get lost or broken while at school.
