Three year old children are making great developmental strides and are beginning to express an interest in the world around them. They are very curious and spend a lot of time watching, observing, and imitating. Our goal at My School is to provide the children with a wide variety of activities that will help them gain new skills, abilities and knowledge. We follow the children's lead to determine their readiness to learn age-appropriate skills. Since children do learn by experiencing, by doing and from their play, we encourage them to become actively involved in all activities at a level that is appropriate for each individual. Our curriculum is theme-based. All topics are taught actively with the aid of songs, puppets, props, movement, games, and art activities. We encourage the children to work together and use language successfully to interact with both peers and teachers. We use every opportunity to show the children how people can help one another, be kind to one another and respect one another. One of the most important aspects of our program is to foster a positive self-image in the children, as well as a love of learning.
Students enjoy taking home the class mascot, who they get to name. The "pet" has it's own carrier, toys and a journal. Students are encouraged to draw or write about their experiences with their mascot.
All students participate in the Annual My School Preschool Art Show. The children's work is displayed in our "Art Gallery." They take the role of an "Art Docent" and tour their family through the gallery.
Field trips have included Yeck's Pumpkin Patch, the Mars Train Station, and Succop Nature Park.
