Your Child Will Enjoy Our Preschool Junior Program!
At the age of 3, children are beginning to develop special friendships and to interact with their peers.
The Preschool Junior room for 3 year olds at Childrens’ Kastle offers a warm, nurturing, structured, and fun environment in which your child will learn, grow, and thrive.
Teachers are facilitators and assist with problem solving. Childrens’ Kastle preschool programs help your 3 year old begin the transition to a more formal education environment.
As kindergarten readiness is a process, academic small groups are introduced during our Pre-K for 3 year olds preschool programs. Activities will be simplified or enhanced as appropriate to meet the developmental needs of your child.
The curricula for our preschool programs cover the following areas:
- Reading readiness
- Math readiness
- Arts and crafts
- Music and movement
- Practical life
- Bible stories
A variety of stimulating hands-on activities will enhance the development of fine and gross motor skills, cognitive, social and emotional development and academic development.
Every morning our 3 year old preschoolers start the day with:
Circle Time — Includes stories, songs, finger plays, Bible Story, and show & tell, with a weekly emphasis on a color, shape, letter, and a weekly theme.
Small group time — Every preschooler participates in the following academic activities daily: reading readiness, math readiness, arts & crafts, and science.
Our printing-rich environment enhances the emerging interest of your child’s writing and early literacy skills.
During free time, there are many opportunities for your child to explore housekeeping, blocks, manipulatives, library, art, and water table area.
Our teachers evaluate all children formally twice a year and of course, daily communication and daily visits with your child are encouraged and welcomed.
