3d Preschool

3 Year Old Class Curriculum

For most children, the preschool experience is a very new and exciting time in their lives

Our goal at 3D Preschool is to provide a safe, healthy and, secure environment away from home. Our three year old curriculum gives each child an opportunity for growth in all areas of a child’s development. The 3 year old class is full of fun and frolic, they spend a lot of time watching, observing, and imitating. Here at 3D, we encourage our children to explore, create, imagine, and enjoy the day in a theme based curriculum.

We begin our day with circle time, music and movement and, story time. Then move on to our independent and / or teacher directed activities such as Art Activities, Playdough, Water Table, Large Motor Activities, Dramatic Play, Language Arts, Math, Science, Fine Motor Activities, Reading Center, Block Building, and Small Group Games.
