Education | Pre-K 3

Pre-K 3 Program

When our 3-year old students begin displaying more complex language skills we transition them to our Pre-K 3 program. Our curriculum continues to build upon the four foundational areas: language, relationships, movement and sensory perception.

An exciting characteristic of 3-year old children is that they become more physically independent and emotionally and socially aware. Building upon the routines established in the earlier programs, the Discovery Tree Academy teachers develop lesson plans that encourage, socialization and problem solving skills.

A vital part of the Pre-K 3 program is the use of our learning centers. In learning centers your child will practice the concepts and information they learned during whole group and small group activities. They will also learn about the importance of friendships, generosity, and honesty.

The partnership between Discovery Tree Academy teachers and our families is crucial to ensuring your child has a positive experience in school. Open and continuous communication is an extremely important practice for our teachers. We provide you a daily report that gives detailed information about your preschooler’s daily, the need for extra supplies and most importantly how you can reinforce their learning at home. A minimum of three formal parent-teacher conferences are scheduled each year. This harmonious relationship creates an environment where our children are highly prepared for kindergarten and blossom into life-long learners.
We encourage and invite you to visit any time; come see what your child is discovering today!
