Curious Kittens Room

Our Curious Kittens classroom is offered for 3 year olds. This is when children really begin to become autonomous and interact more with others. Children in this classroom will be given the opportunity and tools to reach milestones that are appropriate at their age level. By the end of the year students will have progressed in all developmental domains that include cognitive, language, gross motor, fine motor, social studies, science, and social emotional. Our 3 year olds will cognitively be able to follow and carry out simple 3 step directions and understand the concept of counting. They will recall and recognize some letters and numbers. Children will be able to imitate and use imagination while also becoming more aware of dangers around them and how to avoid them using problem solving skills. Children’s language in this classroom will expand with more questions coming into play with who, what, where, and why questions being asked. Children will name actions happening in stories. At this stage children will be able to exchange more words to make conversation and it should be fairly easy to understand. In this busy classroom their gross motor skills will enhance while being able to stand on one foot for 5 seconds, pedal a tricycle, kick forward, go up and down stairs with no support, and throw a ball overhand. Their little hands will develop their fine motor skills with being able to begin using child safe scissors, draw simple shapes, begin copying uppercase letters, and even opening simple packaging. In social studies they will be able to recognize community helpers and their roles, and how people collaborate. In science children will explore measuring simple sizes like big and small, sorting, exploring textures, and be more curious of the world around them. Targeting our social emotional domain will allow children to develop self help skills like eating independently, cooperating with others through sharing and taking turns, and begin regulating their own emotions in an appropriate manner.
