Our three year old program centers around the child, his role in the family, and the role of the family in the community.
Self awareness is fostered through lessons including the wonderful worth of the individual, the unique qualities of each individual, and physical features of each individual child.
The second half of the program allows the teachers to move the child and the knowledge he/she has acquired thus far, into the realm of the child’s role in his family and then the role of the family in the community. Other skills such as name recognition, shape and color recognition, and rote counting are enjoyed in a hands on learning through play practice.
Children’s literature is used to convey many of the intellectual concepts that are introduced. Sensory, art, and play activities are important components of the program that are used to stimulate the child’s creative and intellectual talents.
Oral language, communication, and social skills are important aspects that are encompassed in our daily schedule. Another aspect that is an integral part of our curriculum is the motor skills area, including fine and gross motors. Activities to increase the child’s abilities in these areas are linked into the daily routine.
The three year old curriculum allows for development of the WHOLE child and prepares him for our upper level classes.
