3 Year Olds

Classroom Information

The 3 year old Room at Little Hands Learning Center creates a fun and nurturing environment for your children. In this age group, your child is becoming aware of his or her friends, developing positive relationships with others, and working together. Social and interpersonal skills are nurtured within your child by providing creative play activities.  Potty training is an exciting and important part of their lives, and we gently lead the child in developing good habits and hygiene. 

Each child will have their labeled cot for nap. We ask that you bring a blanket for your child and you may bring a small pillow or stuffed animal for a comfort item as well. We ask that you bring them home at the end of the week to be washed.

Special Activities
The children participate in activities daily. The activities include circle time, art, songs, story time, cooking, science and large motor/outside time. We provide a weekly lesson plan on our toddler news board of the activities we are doing and one is also sent home every week. (Activities are subject to change in accordance to weather.)

Your child’s intellectual development is encouraged through educational toys and games, as well as outdoor walks, art, group reading, and song and dance.We provided manipulative, small blocks, lacing toys, puzzles and many activities for small-motor development. We provide a quiet area with books, dolls and stuffed animals. We provide a large assortment of musical toys and other age- appropriate toys for development. A large playground is available outside, weather permitting.
