3 Year Olds – Green Frogs

The 3s program consists of two classes each meeting three days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Parents can choose between a Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday/Friday option.

One parent assists (co-ops) in the classroom daily Monday through Thursday and two parents assist on Friday to maintain an adult-to-child ratio of no less than 1:6.

In the Green Frog classroom, the children work on developing cognitive, social, and self-help skills through their play. This typically happens as they explore water or rice in the sensory table, work with play dough, build with blocks, magnatiles and other manipulatives, climb on the play equipment, ride bikes and cars, play and listen to music, and create and experience art.

A typical day in the Frogs classroom includes:

9:00–9:45 Outside play/gross motor
9:45–10:15 Snack
10:15–10:30 Circle
10:30–11:30 Free play/specials
11:30–12:00 Bikes
