3-4 Year Old Classrooms

Student during playtime

Our 3 and 4 year old classrooms are mixed-age classrooms that focus on early learning standards and building social emotional skills. Students will learn how to use scissors to cut out simple shapes, identify some letters, learn letter sounds, how to count to 10, identify shapes and colors and how to draw simple shapes. Even more importantly though, our students will learn how to establish positive relationships with their peers and learn how to identify and cope with all the emotions that come with being 3 and 4 years old. This is a critical time for children to learn how to collaborate with others and build those important social skills that will be life long.
