Arts and Smarts for 3's
This enrichment opportunity is an extension of our TTh and TThF preschool sessions and allows children the opportunity to attend school three or four days per week. Students will be given the opportunity to immerse themselves further into the developmentally appropriate practices of our three year old curriculum in the areas of: science, math, literacy and the arts. This program differs from the Literature for Little Learners and STEAM classes, which are suited for mastery of our four year old curriculum. Class meets one morning per week from 9:00-11:30. Children must be 3 by December 1 to enroll in this class.
This literacy program will promote language development in an interesting and exciting setting. Children will be exposed to numerous forms of print and the spoken word. Well chosen books will be used as stepping stones to expand on your child's ability to follow a story line, follow a sequence of events, practice listening skills, respond to the beauty and techniques of the illustrations, have conversations and understand the connection between the spoken word and written text. Creative and varied activities will be presented to your child each class to immerse them in all the treasures that literature has to offer. The class will provide the opportunity to spend more time with favorite authors, illustrators, and characters. Children must be 4 by December 1 to enroll in this class.
Good education begins with a child's natural curiosity. This enrichment class will take that curiosity and unleash the magic and mystery of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Teachers will utilize creative thinking activities, hands-on experiments, shared and cooperative experiences, field trips, guest speakers and literature to expose your child to the elements of the scientific method (observation, hypothesis, prediction, experimentation and evaluation). These varied activities will allow your child to discover the world of science and math in a fun and age appropriate manner.
Children must be 4 by December 1 to enroll in this class.
