Our PreK3 classroom, known lovingly by the children and teachers as the “Yellow Lambs,” is a small group of 3-4 year olds, taught by Ms. Kaylee. The capacity in this classroom is only 9 children. This makes for a wonderful, close relationship to form between teacher and students, and between the students. Ms. Kaylee is able to have one on one time with each child each day. Our assistant teachers also help in this classroom at various times during the day.
The day in the PreK3 classroom is structured, and includes times for indoor and outdoor free choice, group meeting/”circle time,” center time, and small group
times for more intensive time working on pre-reading, writing, math, science and other projects. Pre-reading, writing, math, science, social studies, art, music, and social & emotional skill building are all built into every study and center in the classroom as well. The PreK3 class also joins in “specials” such as spanish, music, science, P.E., and chapel.
Requirements for this classroom are: the child must reach his/her 3rd birthday upon enrollment, and must be potty trained. (We are willing to work with a child on completely mastering potty skills, but the child must be able to wear underwear to school each day as we do not have diaper changing facilities.)
