TWO'S AND THREE'S
Our Three's Preschool Classroom & Childcare Details
As your child approaches the age of three, he or she is ready to develop new skills. Our "Three's Classroom" is an Early Preschool Program designed to emphasize socialization and emergent skills. This will prepare your child for an educational voyage that will lead to kindergarten and lay the foundation for lifelong success and love for school. Our distinctive, teacher-created curriculum allows us to meet each child's unique cognitive, social, and emotional needs which we combine with the finest early-childhood standards from across the nation. Our school philosophy... academics in the AM and "school is cool" FUN, socialization, and community in the PM!
Our Early Preschool learning adventure begins with our weekly, thematic literature based content, supported by planned learning activities that develop social, motor, creativity, cognitive, as well as communication and language skills. Theme based curriculums are an effective way to introduce and formalize beginning concepts. The "Three's Classroom" has multiple learning stations outfitted with engaging and developmentally appropriate materials. We understand that children learn best through the playful interaction of objects and people. That is why we promote children's natural inquisitiveness in an environment that allows them to learn and progress at their own pace. We believe that "Constructive" play is a powerful learning tool and should not be undervalued. We also believe that "School is Cool"! This will give them a solid foundation to LOVE learning!
