3-Year-OldProgram

Immerse your child in an environment of question and discovery.

ProgramDescription

The Bearspaw Preschool 3-year-old program is designed to introduce children to the routines of the classroom as well as basic skills around socialization and independence. Emphasis is placed on listening skills, manners, taking turns, sharing toys and following instruction. Fine and gross motor skill development is accomplished through classroom activities and daily gym time in our full-size gymnasium.

The crafts and activities that our three-year old’s participate in tend to fall in theme with seasonal activities such as fall, winter, spring, Thanksgiving, Halloween, the Holiday Season, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Additional themes such as the farm, shapes, colours, bugs, butterflies, friendship and community helpers are also brought in throughout the year.

While our program is based on learning through play, we do offer a number of science-related toys such as magnets, color mixing, measuring cups, water beads, sensory bins and a light table to ensure our students have a fully rounded experience.

Additional Information:

As the school year nears, we have been advised to talk about Separation Anxiety with our families as this is likely going to increase this year. Experts have advised that the best way to handle this moving forward is to have parents start talking about going to school with your child earlier so that they are able to start to prepare to be away from their homes and parents for a period of time during the day. Also talk about the changes in the routine and the classroom and that parents wont be able to be present in classrooms to start the year. This will provide your little one with as much information as  possible and hopefully provide them with comfort as  they enter the school year.

Once again thank you parents, we are looking forward to opening our doors to your children and having a great, and safe school year.
