Welcome to the Three's Room!

Our classroom focuses on pre-reading and pre-writing skills, encouraging development and growth in those areas through games, activities, and hands-on lessons. We believe that learning is most meaningful to children when they are excited and engaged. In our theme-based units we explore science, writing, reading, math, emotions, and so much more! Children are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities designed to captivate their attention and imagination while learning skills that are necessary to be successful throughout their educational career and life.

Important Information About the Three's Room

Our classroom is full of activities your child can participate in that will not only be a lot of fun but also educational.  In this class, we focus on teaching the children self-control, social skills, reading readiness and pre-math skills.  We also try to include in our daily activities art, music and something that will help to improve the children’s large motor skills.

The children are encouraged to communicate their negative feelings with their words so that they are not tempted to use aggression as a means of dealing with conflicts.  We try to deal with inappropriate behavior in a positive manner, although there are occasions when we feel that a time out is appropriate.  If your child receives a time out, we will usually let you know at the end of the day so that we can work together to correct the behavior.

Toys that are specifically for naptime, such as a doll or stuffed animal, are welcome but will stay in the child’s cubby until nap time.

There will be times when we invite you to join us in the classroom for either a celebration or a special event to go along with a certain theme.  But, parents are always welcome in our classroom.  In fact we encourage parent participation as often as possible.
