3 year old program

Our 3-year-olds will enjoy a socialization time, practice-sharing “using their words” in interactions and learning how to be a friend. The children are introduced to recognizing their names, shapes, colors, numbers, letters and counting. The children participate in songs, finger plays, games and hear a story each day. Routines are established through directed free play and circle time activities. A theme related project is planned for each class.

4-5 year old program

Readiness for Kindergarten is the main goal of this program. It is our hope that the children in our class will enjoy being part of a class where we will make new friends, be able to try new things and learn about the world through a variety of themes. The children will be involved in free play, circle and project times.
The children will be introduced to:

• Alphabet letters, sounds and Sign Language for each letter
• Numbers and counting
• Cutting, gluing, etc.
• Many small motor activities to strengthen finger muscles
• Writing/recognizing name
• Addresses and phone numbers
• Parent Conferences held in fall or by appointment at any time
