Play based learning for all the ‘3’s and 4’s’
*Tuesday-Thursday AM (9:00-11:30) or PM (12:30-3:00)
Our T-TH classes designed for 3s turning 4, offers endless opportunities for children to meet success every day. As a child’s first school experience, we provide an inviting environment that fosters self esteem and a genuine love of learning. Age appropriate materials and activities build a strong foundation for future learning. Circle time with music and movement is combined with dramatic play, art, building blocks, fine motor manipulatives and science and sensory areas help children grow in all areas of development. For example, reading readiness skills such as rhyming and playing with sounds, language and an awareness of math concepts such as sorting, patterning, shapes and number understanding are included in the curriculum. A sense of wonder is introduced through science units as we explore the world around us. Outside, gross motor play provides fun and positive social interactions. Our goal is to help children learn to be self-confident and independent.
Students must be 3 by September 1st in order to be enrolled in this class. Potty training should be mostly completed in order to attend. Enrollment is capped at 12 children.
Our classroom is set up to make sure that every student has a chance to play and learn. The room is large allowing for many different types of guided play. Manipulatives and toys abound in many different forms. We offer “loose parts”, items to add into play such as rocks, pine cones, wooden tree coins that spark creatively, and encourage children to think outside the box. Stimulating growth in each area of development is woven into each carefully selected activity and play center.
