Our 3’s classroom allow the children to pursue activities, which are considered to be in the realm of the traditional preschool curriculum. There is ample opportunity for exploration and imaginative play with large blocks, dress up clothing, housekeeping and building equipment (among other toys), as well as structured learning activities. Concepts introduced in the previous classroom are expanded. For example, a child is pasting to complete a definite project, cutting on a line to make a square or circle, drawing between two lines to develop eye/hand coordination and beginning writing skills. Children continue to work on numbers, counting and shapes and the alphabet is introduced. Children also continue their large motor skills through activities during our indoor and outdoor gym time. This class has a 2:16 ratio.
While in our three’s class, the children continue to share snack and lunch together. Quiet time or naps are reserved for after lunch.
Parents will need to bring a lunch, sleeping bag, change of clothing, which will remain at the center, and any comfort items needed for sleeping. Please have everything clearly labeled. While it is not required that our 3’s be toilet trained and out of diapers/pull-ups, it is highly recommended that parents be actively toilet training their children. Staff will work alongside parents to help in this process.
A part day option schedule is available.
Our 4-K classroom is geared to preparing our 4-5 year old children for kindergarten. We focus on providing cross-categorical learning and development that is “hands-on”. The children learn about a particular subject and then have the opportunity to explore what has just been introduced through various means and learning styles. Our curriculum richly provides kindergarten Readiness and positive socialization through large group, small group, and individual learning opportunities.
Our program is specifically designed to include, but is not limited to, the following:
Math Readiness: Math games, number recognition, counting, patterning, shapes, and sizes.
Reading Readiness: letters and letter sounds, colors and name recognition, introducing children to different authors and illustrators.
Language: following directions, songs, music, stories and finger plays.
Handwriting Without Tears- It is a fun interactive learning program to teach your child the key foundation skills they need for kindergarten with multi-sensory and developmental learning. A workbook for each child will accompany this program.
Social Studies: address certain aspects of time, (“past and present”), places, cultures, families, sequence of events, and more.
Science: experimentation, measurement, observation, prediction, weather, nature
Fine Motor Skills: painting, cutting, gluing, puzzles, books, self-help skills like buttoning/zipping.
Large Motor Skills: games, gym and outdoor activities! These are activities that encourage hopping, jumping, running, throwing/catching and balance.
Problem Solving: identifying (what would happen if…?), classification (what does/does not belong…?)
Self-help skills: putting on shoes, boots, jackets, coats etc. washing hands, opening and closing items, cleaning up after oneself.
While in our 4-K class, the children continue to share snack and lunch together. Quiet time or naps are reserved for after lunch.
