3/4 year old program

Our emphasis of the 3/4 year old program is learning through play by:

  • Supporting each child as an individual.
  • Peer socialization through cooperative play
  • Peer communication skills, public speaking & conflict resolution(eg. Show & tell)
  • Conflict resolution (eg. Turn-Taking)
  • Independence through daily life skills (eg. Cooking)
  • Empathy and respect through adult and peer modeling
  • Experiencing diversity through a variety of cultural celebrations
  • Creativity through Reggio-inspired and open-ended art.
  • Gross and fine motor skills through participating in groups and individual activities (eg. gym time)
  • Exploring the outdoors through some outings and fieldtrips
  • Environment awareness through recycling and gardening.
