The Dumbo’s Darlings are a transitional three year old class. This group is specially designed to allow children more time to fully be ready to start in the preschool program. They are introducing the letters and are making fun projects incorporating the alphabet and making alligators out of A, dogs out of the letter D, etc. They are beginning to take responsibility for their own belongings and are great helpers around the classroom. Each day they are spending time in centers focusing more on fine motor activities, math, literacy, and using their imaginations often! We will assist you and your child in potty training making it a pleasant experience and something the students are proud of.
After completing the transitional three’s class, you will graduate into the Pinocchio’s Pals Preschool. These children are practicing to shade with crayons, writing with pencils, are learning their own name as well as their friends’ names. They rotate in centers independently and the teachers are monitoring their progress to ensure that all of their strengths are enhanced and helped build the areas they need more assistance in. The children have expanded their vocabulary by leaps and bounds! We love our listening center and enjoy books on CD, games on the computer, messy play in the sand and water table, and are creative with the blocks/people/cars/trains. Each day the students are practicing tracing various shapes, patterns, and are starting to learn to trace letters.
