3D Preschool - 3 Year Old Class Curriculum

For most children, the preschool experience is a very new and exciting time in their lives.

Our goal at 3D Preschool is to provide a safe, healthy and secure environment away from

home. Our three year old curriculum gives each child an opportunity for growth in all

areas of a child’s development. The 3 year old class is full of fun and frolic, they spend

lot of time watching, observing, and imitating. Here at 3D we encourage our children to

explore, create, imagine, and enjoy the day in a theme based classroom.

We begin our day with simple routine like circle time, music and movement and story

time. Then move on to our independent and/or teacher directed activities such as Art

Activities, Play dough, Water Table, Large Motor Activities, Dramatic Play, Language

Arts, Math, Science, Fine Motor Activities, Reading Center, Block Building and Small

Group Games.
