THREE YEAR OLDS
Three-year-olds are special! They are transitioning from parallel play to interactive play, and their language capacity is blossoming. They are becoming much more mobile, and they are learning to show genuine affection and concern for their peers. Frogstreet Threes meets the specific needs of three-year-olds in key areas of development.
The cognitive, physical and social skills of most rapidly developing three-year-olds are significantly different from other ages, according to early childhood brain research. Despite these differences, three-year-olds have been combined with either younger or older children in traditional classrooms, due to the lack of developmentally appropriate instruction. Recognizing this gap, Frogstreet has launched the first-ever comprehensive curriculum for three-year-olds!
Frogstreet Threes provides intentional instruction in key areas of development so children ages 36-48 months can effectively continue on the path to kindergarten readiness. Key components include age-appropriate, challenging activities developed around early brain development research, a well-rounded scope of activities that address all developmental domains, intentional instruction that optimizes key windows of opportunity for growth and development, and a social and emotional emphasis featuring Dr. Becky Bailey’s Conscious Discipline®.
Educators understand that the cognitive, language, physical and social skills of most rapidly developing three-year-olds are significantly unique from other ages. Frogstreet and The Kid’s Corral address this growth through:
- Interactive play
- Following through on commitments
- Engaging read-alouds
- Vocabulary development
- Formal introduction to the alphabet
- Phonological awareness
- Writing and fine motor skills
- One-to-one correspondence
- Order Numeration
- Logical reasoning & problem solving
