3 Year Olds

This age marks the transition from toddler to preschooler. By age three, children have mastered most physical skills and begin to develop socially with peers in cooperative—and often more focused—play. These active, hands-on learners become expressive, social members of a group. They begin to sit for longer periods of time, listen to stories, sing songs, and repeat simple rhymes. Our Prime Connections curriculum, with its strong Language and Literacy component, supports these milestones with topics relevant to a three-year-old’s world. In-class learning centers and small group instruction offer an environment rich with opportunities for young children to grow and develop.

This year is such a remarkable stage in a child’s development. As preschoolers gain independence and self-control, they begin to think logically and solve problems. They regularly ask the “how” and “why” of the world around them and become imaginative, creative thinkers. Their ability to coordinate gross motor muscles enables them to focus on achieving fine motor control through practice with drawing, writing and practical skills such as dressing themselves (buttoning, tying, zipping clothing) and pouring juice.

Prime Time’s Preschool curriculum is based on the theory that young children learn through active exploration of their environment. Our focus is to develop the whole child through a broad array of learning experiences that are developmentally appropriate and provide the foundation skills necessary for future school success. Our teachers work with each student on social, cognitive and motor skills; language, and phonics. Each classroom is equipped with education stations and computers.

“It’s been a great experience from the start! I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Prime Time Schools. I am so satisfied every day knowing that this is the place I chose to be apart of out FAMILY. I am so confident that my child is well taken care of, that he is in the best hands, and most of all is genuinely LOVED by the staff here and he LOVES them just as much!!! The staff really puts so much thought, time, and ENERGY in EVERYTHING they do to make every day special and unique for these kids…. “
