3’s Class Schedule
The Ypsilanti Cooperative Preschool 3 year old class offers a balanced mix of child initiated activities (free play) and teacher directed activities (circle time & small group/table activities). We do not use one set curriculum, but blend the best aspects of many different curriculum into one. Some of the curriculum used are as follows:
- Mathematics Their Way by: Mary Baratta-Lorton
- Handwriting Without Tears by: Jan Z. Olsen
- The Creative Curriculum For Early Childhood by: Diane Trister Dodge & Laura J. Colker
- Work jobs by: Mary Baratta-Lorton
The curriculum is typically based on a weekly theme and will include activities to go along with that theme in the following areas:
- Social Studies
- Social Skills
- Fine Motor Skills
- Large Motor Skills
- Music & Movement
The 3 year old preschool class has a total of no more than 16 children. They meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:45am to 11:45am for a 15 week term.
This class costs $371 per term with a $50 discount if the family pays for the entire school year in the fall ($692 rather than $742), plus a $35 registration fee, and a $60 fundraising commitment per term. There is also a refundable $60 deposit if all the family’s obligations are met.
