3 Year Old Classes
With a balance of exploratory and more structured activities, the focus on this year of preschool is on making friends and developing school social skills such as taking turns and working together. Our daily schedule is structured, yet flexible. The schedule provides for a variety of experiences, levels of difficulty, and pacing.
Teachers allow time for individual and small group learning (such as blocks, manipulatives, books, dramatic play, art, and science) as well as whole class activities (such as circle time, music, stories, and movement). A balance of indoor and outdoor activities as well as of active and calm, quiet activities is planned each day. Child-initiated learning is balanced with teacher-guided activities for a complete educational experience. Teachers plan their days based upon careful observation of the children's interests and developmental needs.
