WELCOME TO 3K
About our Program
Each day you will hear about the delightful experiences that we have shared together with your child both in person and remotely. We want your child to be excited and eager to tell you about the wonders they have discovered and the adventures they have had throughout the day. We will be encouraging your child to ask questions and to explore their own ideas, while we document what they learn through play, as they become independent learners. For your child to enjoy and benefit from all of our learning opportunities, we ask you to partner with us by preparing them for school each day.
We welcome your questions, comments, and ideas. Our preschool is a learning environment - not only for children but also for parents and staff. We look forward with enthusiasm to partnering with you in your child’s education.
About our Curriculum
Grounded in the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework(Open external link), Explorations provide instructional opportunities for 3-K for All teaching staff, children, and families to connect, explore materials, and learn together. Explorations invite engagement in comprehensive, in-depth, play-based learning across domains. Topics and activities in Explorations begin with routines and the classroom community then progress to more abstract ideas throughout the year.
Explorations are grounded in research on developmental expectations as described in the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework: Ages Birth to Five (ELOF), which outlines the skills, behaviors and concepts programs foster as they engage with our youngest learners. By using the three Explorations as written, programs will support all of the preschool goals included in the framework.
