3 - 5 years
Our preschool classrooms focus on preparing our young ones to be successful in pre-k, kindergarten and beyond. This age group starts to focus more on curriculum and getting our children ready for school academically, socially and emotionally. Small group time is extended, more field trips and their crafts/projects begin getting more complex and innovative. Children are encouraged to start working on letters and sounds, how to build sentences, getting along with peers and classroom behaviors, as well as continuing to develop their own self worth and confidence.
Our ratios for 3 year olds are 1 to 10 and our 4 and 5 year olds are at 1 to 12. Our teachers focus on building the core fundamentals that will help prepare our Busy Sprouts for school. Major developmental milestones we encourage and observe for this age group include leadership, handwriting, adding more details and specifics to stories and art, understanding shapes and counting objects.
