The Curriculum for 3s and Young 4s begins with focus on social and emotional development. In this age group, children begin to use problem solving skills, independent choice-making skills and creativity. Children begin identifying likes and dislikes, choose to explore through play and assess social cues. An orientation to discuss the 3s/Young 4s’ curriculum goals for the fourth and fifth year of learning is led by the school’s curriculum advisor and lead teacher.
