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

Welcome to the month of May. Splish! Splash! Let’s dive into different water life creatures and plants. Following that we are going to thank our moms, by doing unique/beautiful projects to celebrate and show our moms how much we love them for Mother’s Day.

Since the weather is getting nicer let’s talk about the nature that’s all around us and discover what it’s all about.

As we step into the following week we are going to learn more about family/friends.

Also, do you know what everyone likes...swimming and soon its time for summer! So let’s learn about some fun things to do and safe things we do in summer.   

Make sure everyone stays hydrated and I hope everyone has a great month.

April showers bring May Flowers and we are excited to see them! May is going to be full of many exciting new projects & ideas! Starting our month off still getting to know the outdoors more, by talking about things like nature and the change of weather we are seeing. With Mother’s Day right around the corner we will be working on our special Mother’s Day Project. We are so excited to celebrate all the wonderful role models our kids have. With the sun shining and the air fresh the kids will be spending lots of time outside so they get lots of room to play and grow. Along with that we will be practicing some new skills like gardening, writing, and learning our  letters. Keep an eye out for our new spring door and our many projects that will be sent home in cubbies. On that note, parents, please remember to take home any art work the children have in their cubbies as well as looking out for accident bags. Dirty clothes must be sent home and Fridays sleeping bags must go to be washed and returned Monday morning.  Thank you!

Hello Families! Welcome to May! 

For the beginning of the month of April, we focused on Storybooks in      honor of Week of the Young Child. I ended up reading many of my favorite     childhood classics to the class. The middle of the month we explored the world of Butterflies and investigated further into how we can be more eco-friendly for our Earth. We ended the month focusing on anything and everything related to Bugs! The kids were quite creative this month; some of the crafts consisted of Paper Plate Snails, Butterfly Suncatchers, Shaving Cream Heart Shape Earths, and Pom-Pom Caterpillars!

The themes for May will be Rainbows, Mother’s Day, Flowers/Gardens,    Dinosaurs, and Ice Cream/Popsicles! We have so many art projects and hands-on activities planned for the next month. We cannot wait to share it  all with you!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me on HiMama or to me personally!

Ms. Caroline & the 3’s III
