THREE YEAR OLD PROGRAM
is designed to enhance language and fine motor skill development. The young
child learns through play and in the process learns to cooperate, share and be
part of a group. The safe atmosphere of our classroom allows the child to try
new ideas, practice his skills and foster his sense of self-esteem and
self-control. The teachers within these classes will help the child begin to
develop good work habits, learn class rules and follow safety routines. The
three year old will be taught through careful guidance, the appropriate
techniques of problem solving and conflict resolution.
program's curriculum is planned to foster discovery, learning, and exploration.
The child can choose to work among several centers of interest and to explore
the content areas of math, science, language arts, dramatic play and creative
art. Jewish content is integrated throughout all the centers of learning. The
children are introduced to the letters of the alphabet, number relationships and
the written language. They participate in calendar, journal writing, and large
and small group teaching experiences.
prayers and the study of traditions, rituals and holiday celebrations are
interwoven throughout the child's daily schedule. Jewish values and family
involvement is stressed as part of the three year old program.
