EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM – 3 YEAR OLD

As our three-year-old students gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our well-rounded program fosters that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. Healthy doses of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active, too.

Our goal is to help children develop a sense of math around them, to notice and use numbers, and to use math concepts to explore their world.

They are encouraged to

  • use numbers and counting to explore their world
  • notice shapes, patterns, and colors
  • use math to communicate things about their world (how long something is, how heavy it is, etc)

Expectation : Our students are expected to achieve the following as teachers work with them according to their individual learning pace.

  • Counting 1 to 30
  • Counting forward and backward by ones.
