Fun in 3’s

AM Class, $1600 2 day transition to 3 days in January
PM Class, $1800 3 days all year

The three year old class at MCNS is a fun environment where all aspects of the learning process are introduced!  Teachers incorporate free play time, circle time, and outside/gross motor time.  We explore math concepts including colors, shapes and numbers as well as the Language Arts concepts of name and letter recognition. Students will work to develop fine motor skills through activities such as cutting, tracing, painting and coloring.  The 3’s class always enjoys gross motor activities like exercising, playing outside or even yoga.  Throughout the year we also incorporate some science activities including raising our own butterflies and releasing them at the end of the year. This class is a great first experience to school and gets the students acclimated to the classroom environment in a warm and welcoming way. Lastly, teachers help guide the children through their social development by encouraging sharing, facilitating cooperative play and fostering friendships.

* In the PM Class, the children will start with 3 days for the entire year, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday afternoons.
