Three-year-olds are full of curiosity and spend a great deal of time observing the world around them. Our Montessori preschool program uses this opportunity to focus on academic readiness skills.
Children learn to recognize the letters of the alphabet, and an expanded range of shapes and numbers. In addition, techniques are used to enhance the child’s ability to associate groups of letters with spoken words, and children are encouraged to tell stories through figures and symbols. Children will also receive a monthly Scholastic workbook called My Big World as part of their learning experience at Beehive. For more information on the Montessori approach and philosophy please visit our Links or Montessori Videos.
Teachers stimulate the child’s understanding of cause and effect and inquisitiveness through activities that present real-world situations. Age-appropriate, interactive learning areas are available for the children to explore and learn as they play. Support and involvement of parents are is encouraged through daily progress reports.
