Three's - Preschool

Research confirms the value of early education for young children. Pre-kindergarten programs that support effective teaching practices have been shown to lead to important growth in children’s intellectual and social development, which is critical to their future academic success. Quality programs that provide challenging but achievable curriculum engage children in thinking, reasoning, and communicating with others. With teacher direction and guidance, children respond to the challenge and acquire important skills and concepts.

Language & Early Literacy:

During the pre-kindergarten years, children’s experiences with communication and literacy begin to form the basis for their later school success.  Given adequate opportunities to interact with responsive adults and peers in language and print-rich environments, young children develop vocabulary, extended language skills, and knowledge of the world around them.  They develop listening comprehension and phonological awareness; understanding of the everyday functions of print; motivation to read; appreciation for literary forms; and print awareness and letter knowledge.  They learn what books are and how to use them.  accomplishments of the typical future good reader are understanding the value of literacy as a means of communication, as well as coming to enjoy reading.  These language and literacy accomplishments are best achieved through activities that are integrated across different developmental areas: cognitive development, fine and gross motor development, and social and emotional development. It is important to consider native language, augmentative communication, and sensory impairments in accomplishing these guidelines.

Mathematics:

Mathematics learning builds on children’s curiosity and enthusiasm, and challenges children to explore ideas about patterns and relationships, order and predictability, and logic and meaning.  Consequently, quality instruction occurs in environments that are rich in language, encourage children’s thinking, and nurture children’s explorations and ideas.  These ideas include the concepts of number pattern, measurement, shape, space, and classification.

Science:

Young children are natural scientists.  They are eager to discover all they can about the world in which they live.  In pre kindergarten, children participate in simple investigations that help them begin to develop the skills of asking questions, gathering information, communicating findings, and making informed decisions.  Using their own senses and common tools, such as a hand lens, students make observations and collect information.  Through these processes, pre kindergarten children learn about their world. Children enter the preschool classrooms with many conceptions about the natural and constructed world-ideas that they have gained from prior experiences.  Meaningful science learning experiences help children investigate those pre-existing ideas while building a foundation for additional knowledge.  These meaningful experiences increase children's understanding of the natural world, living things, cycles, change, and patterns—concepts that organize the learning of science.
