2s/3s and 3s/4s

Our Program

Our 2s/3s and 3/4s classes provide a loving, supportive environment for the youngest students who are learning to separate from their caregivers, often for the first time. We begin the day with outdoor play time, encouraging opportunities to develop gross motor skills. Children gather inside for circle time, which encourages music, sharing, movement, and an overall sense of community. We offer a group snack, and then free choice indoor play at a variety of learning stations. Gardening, science, yoga and dramatic play are also a part of their day. Children attend chapel weekly.

Daily Routine

Children begin their day with play time in the upper and lower yards, encouraging opportunities to develop gross motor skills using bikes, blue building blocks, and balls. Gardening, and dramatic play are also available. Following a cooperative clean up time, the children gather inside for Circle, which encourages music, sharing, movement, and an overall sense of community. We offer a group snack afterwards of fruit, vegetables and crackers, and sometimes offer a treat from the school garden. After snack, the children enjoy free choice indoor play at a variety of learning stations, which may include art, playdough, building manipulatives, dramatic play, literacy,math, and science. The children end the day with story time.

The students go to Chapel once a week. They also generally take two field trips during the year—to the pumpkin patch in the fall and to Hidden Villa Farm in the spring. Cooking, science and show-and-tell are a regularly scheduled part of the curriculum.
