Preschool Programming (3-Year Olds)

"I go to sleep thinking about my children being spoiled and I wake up thinking about it."

~ Adam Sandler

Our commitment to quality care enhances our Preschool Program through our hands-on, theme based curriculum, which allows children to make good choices and be successful.  At each stage of preschool development careful consideration is given to classroom arrangement and selection of developmentally appropriate toys and equipment to enhance the development of the children. The preschool classroom revolves around 8 interest areas: creative arts, blocks, dramatic play, book corner, manipulatives, math, science and sensory.  Insterest areas are enriched with engaging activities corresponding with the theme. Children interact with a variety of materials to discover and learn.  It is through this child-directed play and fun that preschoolers are actually learning concepts such as counting, letter recognition, sounds, shapes, colors sequencing and listening skills in prepartion for kindergarten.

Arts for Kids has a written program of activities planned according to the developmental level of each group of children and intended to expose children to a variety of cultures.  The program will give each child experiences that will encourage the following:

 

Self esteem and positive self-images

Social interacation

Self-expression and communication skills

Creative expression

Large and small muscle development

Intelluctual growth

We are excited to have her as our new teacher!

We have been lucky to have Miss Nash come in for the late afternoon shift as well!

Have a great October!  

 

 

    

3’s III

Hello Friends and Happy Fall!

My career path has lead me to a different place in life but it has been an absolute privilege working with kids these past 10 years.

Miss Kelsey will be taking over the classroom, Welcome Miss Kelsey!

Coming in October we are learning all about pumpkins. What’s inside? How do they grow? What can we do with them? We’ll find out.

Things get spooky in October, so we will learn about nocturnal creatures and animals at night.

In preparation for Halloween we will learn about costumes and candy. We will practice Treat-or-Treat safety and how to dress up.

For Halloween we are having a party! Watch for a sign-up sheet as it gets closer.

Ghosts, Goblins, and Monsters Beware...the 3 year olds can give you a scare!

Have a beautiful fall and thanks for playing and learning with me!

Love,

Miss Kelley
