Threes

CURRICULUM | INFANT/TODDLER/2s | 3s | VPK | K/1

We offer a Bridge Room at this level to provide additional academic challenges for those children who are socially and cognitively able to accept more, and would benefit from, a more advanced curriculum.


Older three-year and young four-year old children in a Bridge Room are generally more socially mature and will be exposed to academics that will emerge in VPK, such as word families and site words.

This experience provides a safe and positive bridge – first step – from their defined program to the greater independence of a preschool program. Bridge Room classes afford an opportunity for children to build confidence, gain valuable social interaction skills, and cultivate a positive self-image through the support of our experienced teachers. 

  1. OUR THREES PROGRAM PROVIDES AN INTRODUCTION TO THE SKILLS AND CONCEPTS LISTED AT RIGHT. WE UTILIZE CREATIVE CURRICULUM IN EACH CLASSROOM WHICH ALLOWS EACH CHILD TO EXPLORE AND LEARN HANDS-ON. KIDS’ STUFF RECOGNIZES THAT EACH CHILD LEARNS AT HIS/HER OWN PACE. FOR INSTANCE, SOME OLDER THREE-YEAR-OLDS AND YOUNG FOUR-YEAR OLDS LEARN DIFFERENTLY THAN YOUNGER THREE-YEAR-OLDS. THEY HAVE DIFFERENT NEEDS AND WANTS, AND ARE CAPABLE OF RATIONALIZING MORE THAN THEIR YOUNGER COUNTERPARTS.
