Each new accomplishment fills three year olds with pride and the desire to learn more. They realize, “I can do it!” Our program makes it easy and exciting for them to learn.
Our program teaches essential reading, writing, math, science and social skills in a logical, natural sequence that encourages children to learn, one step at a time. Art, reading, dramatic play, blocks, manipulative materials in the classroom will allow a selection of activities that children can play and work through independently – with a partner or in groups. This, along with social interaction helps each three years old explore creativity and build self-esteem.
Structured, teacher-led circle times will help children connect themes and ideas through stories, songs, visuals and special events. Hands on experiences that support choice, creativity, friendships and thinking skills will circle the child’s day. Math is found in many places. Concrete materials (such as mazes, puzzles, and pattern blocks) invite children to explore logical reasoning, math relationships, and patterns; intricate block creations expand their spatial perceptions. With teacher guidance, math concepts are introduced and explored.
Children’s increasing independence and responsibility are encouraged. Teachers help them refine their concentration and ability to follow through on commitments. Above all, we recognize and nurture their love of learning.
Hands-on experiences are the heart of all learning, and our curriculum evolves from children’s places in their own development. Teachers focus on the multiple aspects of students’ learning and growth—social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and creative.
Monthly themes, weekly topics and daily activities keep the curriculum focused and fun. Our strong, literacy-based approach teaches reading readiness, using Letter of the Week, journal writing, songs, rhymes and stories.
