Class meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 2019/2020
9:15-11:45am with option to stay until 1:00pm
Our three year old classes meet three days a week in the morning. Our main focus is to help the children make a smooth transition from the home environment to the school environment. We strive to prepare the children cognitively, emotionally, and socially for next year at the pre- kindergarten level.
Each day we begin with a welcome circle to share and discuss our plans for the day. Our morning meeting consists of weather, calendar and new helpers. We offer directed and free choice art, music, literature, social play, exercise and snack. Also during the year we cook and take part in dramatic play. We place great emphasis on the seasons of the year and the weather through our art projects, music, and literature. Special extended units of study that are covered include Our Five Senses, Nursery Rhymes, and the Farm, and insects.
We encourage developing vocabulary and language, being kind to others, using good manners, and developing a sense of independence. We promote name recognition, beginning sounds, counting, and beginning manuscript. We invite you into our classes through the year to read, help with class parties, and attend our holiday programs. Conferences are held in January and a written evaluation is presented at the end of the year.
