A little more “worldly-wise”, with greater vocabulary, and sense of self, this class offers fun ways for children to work together in groups through collaborative activities (building, imaginative play, etc.). With a two out of the three days drop-off, it’s an opportunity for children to learn to be even more independent and rely on trusted adults for assistance. Longer circle time, greater emphasis on story-telling, conversations, and following instructions are emphasized. Pre-academic skills, such as counting, spelling, using scissors, among others, are introduced.
Parent education topics include:
- Age appropriate guidance and discipline,
- Age appropriate expectation and developmental milestones,
- Sexuality development,
- Creativity and imagination,
- Pre-academic readiness,
- Preparing for school registration,
- Developing friendships
NOTE: Threes and Pre-K are combined for 2020-2021. The teacher and parent educator work to ensure that topics, activities, and materials in the classroom cover the full range of ages and interests of our students.
