Children ages 3 to 5 meet four days a week in our play-based class to practice social skills, learn emotional intelligence, build literacy and math skills, and much more. The 3-5's curriculum celebrates each child as an individual during a special week, when we explore their interests and the diversity of our community. Children learn about cultures and traditions through stories, pretend play, art, and guest visitors.
The first Monday of each month, the older set of kids (Pre-K) venture out of the classroom for exciting field trips that broaden their understanding of the world and build their sense of community.
Beginning in January, our class time stretches from three to four hours, easing kids into longer school days.
3-5s begin class with open choice time, moving as they wish between various stations inside the classroom.
At circle time, the class gathers to talk about the weather, count the days in school, read books, discuss social/emotional concepts, practice listening quietly, and singing songs. The class then separates into small groups led by parents before heading outside to explore in our play space and get out some big energy. Class ends with closing circle and goodbyes.
Our program also invites a guest speaker in for each preschooler's special week to present a topic related to the theme the child chose for that week. Notable guests in recent years have included The Reptile Man, Insect Safari, a tea party given by a Tea Queen, Northwest Railway Museum, Washington Butterfly Association, and the Seattle Mountaineers.
Parents are a major component of the success and stability of our non-profit school. Aside from making it possible to have a 3-4:1 adult/child ratio, parents bring a variety of skills and talents to the classroom. Parents of 3-5s are expected to:
