Three year-old children who register for this program participate in their morning classes, go to Lunch Buddies from 11:45 – 12:45 to eat their lunches, play and relax, and then return to the 3 year-old classroom for the enrichment program from 12:45 – 1:30. The full program runs from 11:45 – 1:30 on Wednesdays and/or Fridays. Annual registration is required for this program which runs the full academic year.
This enrichment program will include various monthly themes. Some of these themes may include: All About Me, Family and Friends, My Five Senses, Community Helpers, Polar Region Animals, Ocean, Nursery Rhymes, Farm, and Insects.
Each day the children will discuss what the theme is, learn new facts, listen to stories, sing songs, and create an art project about that theme. They will also explore the theme through various types of activities like science, math, dramatic play, block play, and fine and gross motor skills.
At the end of each day, the children will regroup to discuss what they have learned, talk about their favorite activities, and hear what they will be discussing the next week.
This program is designed to foster and enhance children’s love of learning through themes they enjoy.
