Do you have your 3 year old in Early Learning?

Children's minds are like sponges from birth till the age of 6 years. At Dragonfly's Early Learning, children belong to the Possums group at the age of 3 years with Miss Nairie as their Educator

In this, the period of “WHY” they spend most of their waking hours asking “why”?.....one hundred times a day. In this investigative and curious period, children are introduced to many learning concepts. It is such an important time in a child's life and an opportunity for them to soak up knowledge

This was a fun experiment for these 3 year olds. They are so fortunate to be with their amazing Educator, Miss Ngaire. The children in this group discussed that light can’t pass through some objects and, using this knowledge, made shadow puppets. Encouraged by Miss Ngaire the children used their creativity to create a design and then cut the design out.

By connecting them to paddle pop sticks they then used torches to discover the different shapes that could be created when light was shone on them.

Such excitement as they discussed what shadows they had made!!!!

These activities and many others like them help to make these children school ready and give them a great start in the school programme

This is the time when a decision about early learning should be considered. At this age, they start to become less dependent on you because their sense of identity is growing stronger every day.

Also at this age, some three year olds are seen as particularly difficult but.... really .....just curious and bright, and will be seen to thrive on enrichment activities geared to their particular interests.

Miss Ngaire would love to help you with that!

Armed with this knowledge, if you haven't yet booked your child into a childcare programme, Dragonfly's Early Learning would love to take care of your child's needs.

We follow the government approved education programme aimed at facilitating educational growth.
