Threes and Fours Program

At the Co-op, we provide a program based upon research in the field of early childhood education. Children learn through play, helping them develop skills and concepts necessary to master literacy, math, science and all academic areas, while building competencies that are necessary for success in school and beyond.  Our program is developmentally appropriate, where children learn through hands-on experiences.

Activities include: puzzles and manipulative toys / blocks / trucks & trains / art / writing and listening centers / language and literacy development / water table / nature and science / music and movement / math experiences / easel painting / dramatic play / cooking / woodworking / circle time / indoor and outdoor gross motor activities

The well planned, daily routine incorporates child-centered activities which encourages active learning and discovery, creativity, problem solving, social skills, language, literacy and independence.

Unique experiences include the Ailey Dance Kids Residency creative movement and dance program, as well as yoga for children.  We bring in special visits from a pediatric dentist, local firefighter complete with a fire engine, and representative from Bailey Arboretum who bring rescued animals.
