Each 3-year old class lets the children experience the joy of learning and making new friends in school. Children must turn 3 years old no later than September 30th. Children must be potty-trained to attend Stepping Stones Preschool, diapers and pull-ups are not permitted.
In our 3-year old classes, our children spend the majority of their day learning through play. Our experienced teachers provide a sensory rich environment as they begin to explore the world around them. On a typical day, the children will have directed play, in which the teacher provides specific play experiences to work on a needed skill and free play, where our children are able to choose from a variety of activities. Our 3s also have a significant amount of process-focused art experiences. Here the emphasis lies on the process of the child’s art experience rather than the end product. This allows our children to be creative by exploring art through various mediums. During circle time, the teacher will lead songs, read a book, discuss the weather and perhaps focus on a specific concept, like Thanksgiving or creation.
