THREES Program

THREE YEAR OLDS
(3 years old by September 30)

teacher to student ratio is 1:10

Three-year olds at Vine & Branches enjoy a play-based curriculum with the goal of educating the whole child. Through a combination of child initiated and teacher directed activities children gain strengthen their skills and sense of self. The children learn to relate with peers in a small group as well as a large group activities.

Our preschool curriculum offers learning experiences that include problem solving, literacy, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and critical concepts of social-emotional skill development. Concepts are taught through a project approach as well as play-oriented activities and games which are developmentally appropriate.

Though there is more structure to the day, it does not inhibit a spontaneous trip to the playground, a walk to look for bugs or time to feel the snow or splash in puddles!
