The Three Year Old Classroom

“Learning The Basics”

Welcome to our three year old classroom. We consider this room “Learning The Basics”. The skills learned in this class will more than prepare your child for our four year old room.

Each week your child will be introduced to a variety of age appropriate themes and activities. Our teacher’s will incorporate the weekly theme into their daily lesson plans. The theme is than carried throughout the day.

Listed below are the skills that we hope to learn by the end of the school year in order to be fully prepared for the next classroom.

  • Learn to say the ABC’s (without the song)
  • Shape recognition – 5 basics + heart, star, crescent and octagon
  • Color recognition – 8 basics + pink, gray and white
  • Learn days of the week and months of the year

Be able to count from 0 – 10 and 10 -0

  • Recognize A – Z with flash cards

  • Weather and seasons – hot/cold, sunny/cloudy
  • Enhancing fine motor skills (using scissors, tracing, coloring, writing, etc.)

 What Am I Feeling?

As you can see, the three year olds stay very busy. Because our four year old classroom is equivalent to kindergarten, the three year olds have an extreme amount of things to learn. We make sure that the learning process is done in a fun and flowing fashion. Your child will never feel overwhelmed or discouraged. We know that children learn at different paces and levels so our teachers work with the children on an individual basis.

We feel sure your child will enjoy their stay with us; however, if you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to let us know.
