PRESCHOOL 3& 4 CLASSROOM:
A child’s feeling
of independence and social interaction with others is what the Preschool 3 classroom is all about. Our program revolves around
the children learning to help themselves and getting along with others.
During the course of the day, children are encouraged to make choices
for themselves, cooperate with others as well as listen and follow
directions. During the course of the program the classroom teachers lead
the children in small and large group activities, such as movement,
read-a-loud stories, circle time and art activities. The children are
encouraged to make friends, share and communicate with their classmates.
The children are also prompted to use the bathroom on their own,
although assistance is given if necessary.
In preparation for the Preschool 4 classroom, the Preschool 3 class works on
their hand writing skills, colors, shapes and numbers each day through whole group lessons as well as individual mini lessons.
This gives each teacher the opportunity to work one-on-one with
