About Our Program for Three Year Old Children

In the 3 Year Old Program at Saugatuck Nursery School teachers patiently lead each child into the school’s atmosphere of sharing, group behavior, individualized exploration, and creativity .

A Typical Day in the 3's Preschool Program

The day begins with greeting each child and helping him/her feel comfortable. A “meeting on the rug” consists of a greeting song, choosing helpers, and calendar, as well as an introduction to the day’s activities.

Children then move into the pre-designed activities and free play, which includes blocks, house keeping, dress up, a two tiered play structure, water table, and easels.

Snack time is another opportunity to teach manners and appreciation since each family takes turns contributing snacks.

Story time and music follows before outside play. All activities take advantage of “teachable moments”.

Children on the 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon schedule are picked up from the playground.

Lunch Bunch children go inside for lunch at approximately 12:40 p.m and are picked up at 1:30 P.M. in the Red room.
