Our Rising Stars program is designed to  encourage exploration and create a feeling of safety and security for  our young 3-year-olds (Children can be 2 years 9 months old by September  1 to be in our Rising Stars program).. Children work with open-ended  materials such as blocks, sand, paint, crayons, paper,  playdough  utilizing a multi-sensory approach to learning about the world they live  in.  They learn collaboration through expressing their thoughts and  ideas at circle time, and through socializing with peers.  Social skills  are an important aspect of the development of three-year-old children.   We focus on such skills as sharing, communication, socialization,  following directions, hand-eye coordination, large and fine motor  development.  Children in our 3's program are active participants in all  areas as children get to have jobs in the classroom, such as weather  watcher, calendar helper or snack helper as well as other various jobs.   The classroom encourages a sense of community in which every child is a  part of.

Children take walking trips to Roosevelt Park while stopping to enjoy our Nature Trail.

Music with Miss Patti http://nyartsmart.com/ is offered once a week and fitness with a certified P.E. teacher twice a month.

Name recognition, beginning letter sounds, colors, shapes and counting are also a part of this well-rounded play based program.
Children  in our 3's program can extend their day by adding Lunch Bunch from  11:30-12:30.  This allows additional time for socialization and outdoor  play.
