Three Year Old Program
Our three year old program is for children turning three by December 1st. If you peek into this class, you will find the threes busy working at play! Socialization is a key focus for them. They will learn how to be away from family, engage in story time, share, follow simple rules, and even walk in a line. Math is integrated into their day through routines and play. They will be exposed to numbers, counting with meaning, shapes, patterns, sorting and classifying. Literacy is woven into the curriculum through literature, finger plays, nursery rhymes, songs, and centers. The children will be encouraged to explore different mediums of art. Process not product is encouraged. They experience God's world by visiting an apple orchard or watching chicks hatch out of eggs. Children are given time for gross motor on our large playground and in our gym Most important, they will experience the love of Christ through Bible stories, Bible songs, Chapel and the love and modeling of their teachers. You will see them stop and pray for a child who is sad or hurt. They will learn that Jesus is their best friend. This is just a peek, much more will be happening in this very busy three year old room!
