Some parents choose to wait until a child is ready for a pre-k (4/5 year old) class before sending them to a preschool program. Once enrolled, they find the pre-k program to be a wonderful experience for their child, and we often hear…”I love St. Paul’s and wish I had enrolled my child when they were three to get the full benefit of both years.” The 3 year old program and pre-k program are quite different. In our three year old class, the emphasize is on social growth,
a vital building tool for future educational success. Many young children know their colors, some letters and numbers, but struggle in a social environment. Our three year old teachers have many years of experience working directly with this young age group. Many times, preschool is a child’s first experience in a structured setting with teachers and a group of children. It’s an opportunity to learn to share, follow instructions, and begin the foundation for learning success. Our program offers the benefit of essential playtime and also beginning the first step in pre-math and pre-literacy development.
In preschool, a 3 year old learns to feel cared for and secure with a teacher and builds trust with adults outside of their family. A quality structured environment encourages social interaction and children are shown how to handle conflict with others. A 3 year old at preschool will learn to make choices, learn to take care of themselves and others, and strengthen cognitive skills by engaging in hands-on activities that challenge them to observe, ask questions and solve problems. So, the answer is yes. Most 3 year olds will benefit greatly from preschool. Check out our amazing 3 year old program and see how much fun they are having.
