Three Year Old Classes

We introduce children to several modes of creative expression with an emphasis on building the self-image of the child.

ABOUT THIS CLASS

A teacher/student ratio of 1:6 allows for our teachers to give personal attention to each child. The classroom is inviting and designed to introduce children to many modes of creative expression. The children can explore tables covered with educational manipulatives, puzzles, and free art supplies. Play dough and painting easels are always available. Our playground offers the opportunity for children to ride bikes, climb and slide, dig in the sand, and play with hoops and balls. Imaginary play takes place in and around our playhouses which have an ample supply of tools and dishes.

THEME PROJECTS

Every week there is a teacher guided theme project that corresponds to the classroom theme. Some of our themes include Farm, Fall, Christmas, and Sea Life. Children learn to follow directions, gather insight into the theme, and create a special project to take home.

BIBLE

The children hear an age appropriate Bible story every week. Big, colorful books are used along with the teaching of many Bible songs. The goal is to stress to each one of the children how much they are loved by God.

FINE MOTOR

This teacher directed activity strengthens children's fingers for pencil grip.
The children roll and squeeze play dough, use tongs for picking up small objects, cut with scissors, and string small objects.

MUSIC

The school has a talented music teacher who plays the piano and teaches the children many lively and engaging songs. Different songs for different themes provide constant variety, but old favorites never go out of style.

MATH

Numbers and counting are involved in everything that the children do. In addition, the children have a teacher directed Math Program which focuses on sets, sorting, identifying shapes, and the number concepts 1-7.

PERCEPTUAL MOTOR

The teacher selects activities which require the children to think and then respond using their large muscles. They participate in activities such as crawling through tunnels, tossing beanbags, walking like animals, hopping, jumping, and catching balls.

PRE-READING

The children participate in activities that help them recognize the uppercase letters of the alphabet. The Handwriting Without Tears learning kits provide resources for this curriculum offering.

After a year with our experienced and caring teachers, the children are prepared to move on to our Four Year Old classes.
