Our three-year-olds come to not only discover their voice but also to further explore ideas by manipulating objects in their environment. Mathematical concepts are reinforced through building blocks, LEGO pieces, sorting, and coordinating. Reading readiness is introduced through pretend play, storytelling, and learning nursery rhymes. Science is encouraged through the use of tools and instruments to explore the world around them. Social studies teach them about a richly diverse world outside of their immediate family and community.
Using both “push in” and “pull out” models, our integrated classrooms offer a general education curriculum for all students, with the added benefit of having a specialized teacher come in at specific times to meet individually with students in need of special education.
