3’s Curriculum

 

3-Year-Old Curriculum Overview

Supporting emerging social and academic skills in a nurturing environment is the focus of our 3-year-old program. Children engage in a daily whole group learning time, small group activities, and self-guided play as they learn about routines of school. Hands-on experiences are a focus of the curriculum because we know that children learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process. Children are introduced to basic concepts including colors, letters and number recognition in age appropriate ways. Our well-rounded curriculum is enhanced by music, in-house trips (dentist, firemen, etc…), and gross motor skill development. Classroom student-teacher ratio is 1 teacher to 10 children with additional support staff.
