Children in our Preschool: Three’s program are offered a challenging curriculum, but one that is engaging and meets each child at their interest and skill level. Learning activities are planned that are appropriate for the expectations of a growing and busy 3-year-old. During this exciting year, parents see their energetic three-year-old bloom into a preschooler ready to explore their world and learn new things! This is the year we build the foundation for the kindergarten readiness program. In the Preschool: Three’s program, children will expand their skills in language development and emergent literacy, creative arts, mathematical thinking, science and technology, art concepts, physical development and health and social studies. The teachers incorporate project-based learning into their curriculum which allows for multiple learning domains to be used over a period. As children grow during this year, their social development blooms as they develop friendships and move further into the Associate Play stage and eventually into Cooperative Play stage. These are important stages of play that help develop a child’s social, cognitive, and physical development. In the Preschool: Three’s program we begin to introduce the Learning Without Tears Curriculum, which lays foundational concepts for the Kindergarten Readiness program.
