Our primary goals in the three-year-old program while loving your children is to help them with the “Great S’s”: separation, socialization, sharing, self-expression, self-direction, and sensory development.

 

Learning experiences are designed not only for the gain of knowledge, but also for their stimulation of the love of learning.

 

​Each month brings new thematic units, new materials, and new experiences as we build on the developmental foundations started as toddlers.

 

Favorite units during the year include: All About Me, Farm Life, Dinosaurs, and How Our Garden Grows. We explore language and math through our daily activities, such as reading our names and setting the table for snack. You can often find us singing, cooking, and creating child-driven artistic masterpieces. 

 

We learn to put on coats, take care of toileting needs, and play and climb outside. We learn to count, cut with scissors, graph, sequence, draw representationally, build, take turns, listen, communicate, play games, and so much more.
