Curriculum Offerings for 3s

Our 3-year-old curriculum is a fun-filled and engaging program specially designed for our 3- and 4-year-old students. Our 3s class will provide your child with an engaging, play-based preschool experience. Our day is carefully designed around the philosophy that children learn best through active participation and play. We focus on learning the rhythm and routine of the preschool day, positive socialization, and opportunities for both guided and independent play. Academic skills are taught in a developmentally appropriate context, and at each child's unique pace. Independence and choice are fostered through a variety of approaches, in which teachers adapt classroom play experiences to best meet the needs of all learners. Our daily schedule includes a balance of:

  • Literacy Concepts: letter recognition and formation, listening to stories

  • Mathematical Concepts: number recognition, counting, patterning

  • Science Concepts: making predictions, asking questions

  • Creative and Critical Thinking: daily art projects, dramatic play, problem-solving

  • Speaking and Listening Skills

  • Gross and Fine Motor Skills: Weekly P.E. Class, daily playground time; playdough, cutting, working with small manipulatives

  • Cooperative and Independent Play

  • Music and Movement
