Using a blend of music, art, and play, we aspire to open your 3-year-old’s world while promoting a thirst for learning that inspires their natural wonder and curiosity. Together with our passionate staff, our students learn the basic building blocks of working together while gaining the confidence to become more independent.
At this age, your little one is becoming more secure and ready for a higher level of challenge. As such, our highly trained staff will work to further implement a routine, instill self-help tendencies, and build on the skills they already possess.
A Curriculum Based on Your Child’s Unique Learning Method
No two children are the same when it comes to how they learn. At Kendall Academy, we find that by taking a personalized, hands-on approach, we’re able to create tailored learning plans that inspire the best in every student. Not only will they learn how to voice their wants and needs–they’ll begin forming friendships and making conscious decisions regarding behavior.
Within a carefully cultivated positive atmosphere, it’s our ultimate goal to provide a stable and comprehensive environment in which we can foster learning and exploration for all. And, of course, there are plenty of laughs and fun along the way.
An Integrated Approach to Learning that Fosters a Broad Intellect
At this age, play isn’t just a game – it’s a way for your child to learn, explore, and solve problems. That’s why we strive to provide the perfect balance of work and play so your child can think creatively, ask questions, and connect the dots, all while having fun and developing age-appropriate skills.
Encouraging Cognitive Development through Movement
Research suggests there is a link between cognitive development and movement. At Kendall Academy, we provide children with plenty of chances to move so they can learn effectively. From soccer and ballet to rolling, crawling, skipping, and jumping in a safe environment, we’ll help build your child’s brain in their formative years.
Language and Literacy
At this point in your child’s life, they should be answering questions about stories they hear. To ensure they develop comprehension skills, our teachers ask questions about the beginning, middle, and end of stories. They all focus on letter and sound recognition, rhyming, and vocabulary.
Taking turns and following directions are important at this age. Because once your child develops these skills, they can begin making conscious choices about their behavior, good or bad. We’ll also introduce your child to the all-important concept of community, including differences in families and homes.
Movement is crucial to learning. That’s why we use songs and movement daily to inspire things like creativity, rhythm, and exercise while they learn their numbers, alphabet, and more.
From number concepts like less is more to addresses, ages, phone numbers, and the like – we’ll help your child build their number recognition skills. Using a variety of interactive activities, they should also begin to recognize shapes in their environment, as well as learn to classify, compare, and measure.
Using art, we’re able to encourage little ones to continue to develop their fine motor skills. Relevant activities include cutting, folding, bending, and color mixing.
