In the three-year-old program, we help children carry out personal care routines on their own, solve problems and resolve conflicts, reason, and think. We use feedback and assessment to expand the child’s knowledge and build skills. Children must be three years of age by September 1 to enter our three-year-old program.
We help children develop a sense of self identity and purpose. By allowing ample opportunities for exploration and building self help skills, children become adaptable to varied environments and develop a sense of independence.
Milestones this year include the ability to handle scissors, hold writing instruments in their fingers, and draw shapes and objects in relationship to each other. In addition, three-year-olds are developing more complex language and social skills. They are able to demonstrate greater dexterity and hand-eye coordination as well as strength, balance, and fluidity of movement.
