The three-year-old program continues to build on developing self-help, communication, and social skills while offering more classroom structure. Children in this class will be introduced to letter and number recognition, beginning math skills, and basic science concepts. Color and shape recognition, large motor skills, and language skills will continue to be reinforced. Many opportunities for development of fine motor skills are provided through cutting, coloring, tracing, letter formation, and art activities. The day provides a balance of large group, small group, independent activities, and free play time. The three-year-old class maintains an average ratio of 10 children to 1 teacher.
