The outstanding Three's Program at KLA Brickell provides the best unique education for older toddlers. Encouraging conversations, storytelling, and developing independence.
As your child turns three, their verbal language becomes a powerful tool they use to express themselves. During this year scribbles begin to appear more like symbols and evolve into letters. As this process continues, children may string several of these “written letters” together to form words. Our teachers continuously provide the children with tools to foster this interest.
The children exchange knowledge as they engage in conversations. While your child learns new words and fine-tunes their articulation, they communicate in simple sentences, begin initiating conversations, display a desire to talk about their interests, and can relate personal experiences with others with the support of their teacher.
Their gross motor skills become stronger and activities such as running, throwing or catching a ball, and dancing are a source of great joy. They begin to challenge themselves further and it is common to see them outside in the playground climbing up and jumping down.
As drawings become more detailed and representational, children begin to tell stories through them. This, in turn, helps them to understand that print carries a message and the words we speak can be written and read as well as that stories have a beginning, middle, and an end.
Your child’s identity and independence develop while they begin to question everything around them and are constantly asking, “why?”.
Considering that the Three’s are still using their senses to learn about the world, open-ended materials support the children in developing:
- divergent thinking
- problem-solving skills
While we support children in the discovery of the connotations that print holds.
Teachers prepare environments that encourage interactions between the children, while supporting your child as they begin to learn and comprehend the world of communication through writing symbols and “letters.”
