THREE YEAR OLD CLASS
(Must be 3 years of age by September 1st 2019)
The development of language, mathematical reasoning, and scientific thought is emphasized throughout all the centers. Changes to the learning environment, activities, and projects reflect emerging interests and individual goals.
Learning centers offer guided experiences that encompass all the skills and understanding necessary for optimum development and success in school.
Our Three Year Old Program focuses on the whole child including social and emotional development, as well as cognitive development. We use many ways to do this including planned lessons and those learning moments that we can not plan for but always present themselves.
Learning Centers you will find in our 3 year old classroom:
Blocks / Manipulatives
Dramatic Play/ Housekeeping/ Home Living
Sand & Water/ Pre Science
Outdoor (Large Motor) Learning
3 Year Old Curriculum
Our three year old class uses Beyond Centers and Circle Time Curriculum in conjunction with other resources for each weekly theme.
In addition to our weekly theme based curriculum, we implemented a new character building curriculum in 2012. For our 3 year old class this curriculum focuses on 6 Pillars of Character, a daily promise and our I CARE Rules.
5 PILLARS OF CHARACTER
1. FRIENDSHIP / CARING
6. EMPATHY / GENTLENESS
Today I will be a good friend, show respect to others & have self control.
When I love myself and others that’s the best I can do.
I CARE RULES
I Listen to others
My hands are for helping
I care about others feelings
I am responsible for what I say and do
