3 to 4 years old
Our curriculum for the 3 and 4 year olds builds on the basics of the 2 year old curriculum. Socialization skills are stressed, i.e., sharing, taking turns, helping others, listening to others, and communicating with words to express feelings. The more these skills are developed, the more confident and responsible the child becomes. The child learns to love learning. Activities at this age are designed to help the child develop skills and abilities which are precursors to reading, i.e., sorting, visual discrimination, classifying, grouping, labeling, and sequencing objects of varying shapes, colors, and sizes. at the same time, physical skills such as directionality and laterality are also developed as prerequisites to reading. Teachers read quality stories and rhymes to the children on a daily basis. This helps with language and vocabulary development.
