Three Year Old Program
LilyPad’s three year old program is called the Grasshoppers. The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool allows our teachers to provide a rich classroom environment where children are encouraged to explore and are challenged to learn. Your preschooler will make new friends and develop self-confidence as he strengthens cognitive skills.
Our three year old program goals come from the Creative Curriculum® for Preschool and focus upon four main areas of child development, including:
- Social/Emotional Development: This area includes goals for recognizing feelings and managing them appropriately, respecting the rights of others, and using thinking skills to solve conflicts.
- Physical Development: The goals for this area of development include balancing while moving, coordinating eye-hand movement, and using tools for writing and drawing.
- Cognitive Development: Exploring cause and effect, applying knowledge to a variety of experiences, and using numbers and counting are some goals from the cognitive area of development.
- Language Development: This area includes goals for understanding and following oral directions, expression of wants and needs using words, participating in back and forth conversations, and demonstrating knowledge of the alphabet.
