3 Year Olds
- Teacher-Child: Ratio is lower than or meets State Requirements.
- Classroom environment is more structured.
- Curriculum focus on developing cognitive, social, language, early literacy and physical skills children need to succeed in school and life.
Lower teacher-child ratios ensure that every child receives concentrated attention. Hands-on group and individual activities build confidence and provide positive support that fosters a lifelong love of learning. In addition to a more advanced curriculum your child will continue to have access to games and educational software in the computer lab.
The Creative Curriculum – This program will allow our three year olds and our private preschoolers to develop alphabet skills and phonological awareness. There are a variety of hands-on activities which will promote letter recognition, beginning sound awareness, as well as establishing literacy skills.
The Grayson Academy Curriculum for preschoolers provides children with an array of individual, and small and large group activities. Each week children will explore a theme through group time introductions and reviews, daily enrichments, and additions to each learning center.
3 year old children are beginning to prepare for the preschool an elementary school years. As professionals, the teachers at Grayson Academy provide a structured learning environment so each child will have a strong foundation.
Our outdoor activities are planned to help extend learning to the outside classroom. Just as small muscle coordination is strengthened through puzzles, painting, and cutting, large muscle coordination is developed through outdoor play. Learning cooperation and team building through games and planned activities helps the preschool child understand effective physical and emotional management with his peers. Of course, sometimes just swinging and sliding are all children need to do and we take care of that with our state-of-the-art and age appropriate playground equipment.
Each child develops at their own pace and we encourage communication between staff members and parents on the progress of their child. Daily reports via Class Dojo to build positive behaviors with the students or weekly newsletters from the classroom teachers update parents on daily activities, future class projects and field trips.
