This is a classroom with older threes and younger fours, children who would not make the cutoff date for Kindergarten the following Fall. These kiddos are full of independence! Our teachers, Ms. Elizabeth and Ms. Chris make an incredible team and really love this age group! They follow a theme based curriculum with a focus on literacy. They have an interactive and captivating Group Time that the children help to facilitate! There is a Helper Chart and the children all have “jobs” to do, they love being responsible and caring for the pets, plants, and materials in the classroom. After Group Time, the children break up into “Learning Centers” where the teachers set out activities for the children that encourage Art, Sensory, Math, Handwriting, and Fine Motor Skills. The groups rotate so that each child gets an opportunity to experience each activity. Our experienced and well-educated teachers incorporate Science and/or Cooking into their lessons each week as well! The children love Music/Movement time, sometimes putting on parades for us to enjoy. This class really feels special playing on the “big kid’s playground” which also helps make their transition to the Pre-K Classroom seamless as they are already familiar with the teachers! This is a fun-filled and activity packed classroom, they love to help run the show!
