In our 3 year old classes, children develop autonomy by practicing self-help/life skills, develop a deeper sense of self by exploring personal interests, become more confident through interactions with peers and teachers, and learn about what it means to be a member of a group. As teachers, we facilitate this learning to take place by planning with intention. we select activities that address our unique group of students’ needs and strengths.Students also enjoy age level activities such as a Thanksgiving Feast. Special guests such as fire fighters, Rags to Riches Theatre for Young Audiences and leprechauns enhance our curriculum. At Duke Memorial Weekday School, we believe there is a difference between providing responsive care and actively engaging and teaching children.
