The Three’s: Bright Journey Preschool Classroom (Not Pre –K)


Our Preschool Journey starts here in the "Bright Journey" 3 year old room! We are in preparation for our final years as preschoolers and our teachers begin to expose the concepts of Pre- core Skill learning. So our emerging writers begin to learn how to write and make lines to letter and number recognition! There are a host of different learning activities that will prepare each child as they begin to master and reach new skill levels. We apply many activities to prepare the children for the years ahead in education!

Our Learning Centers Include:


Art Center:

Art materials inspire preschoolers to explore and manipulate paint, clay, crayons, markers, glue, collage materials, and much more. During art experiences children socialize, share, and increase language capabilities.  Pride in artwork goes hand in hand with the child’s emerging self-concept.


Block Center:

Children use blocks to recreate what they know.  They then expand these structures into new and complex structures.  As children become more comfortable with the blocks, they begin to explore more possibilities; creating patterns and designs or experimenting with balance and symmetry.  Exploring with blocks also nurtures an understanding for math, science, language, and dramatic play.


Discovery Center:

A preschooler is very curious about the world in which they live.  The discovery center affords them the opportunity to become independent learners through hands on experimentation.  Children will formulate their own hypotheses, followed by performing experiments, and drawing conclusions.  Some examples include, objects that sink or float, magnets, life cycle of a butterfly, and so on.


Dramatic Play:

Dramatic play develops spontaneously from children’s imaginations.  It allows children to better understand their world by permitting them to incorporate experiences into imaginative activities.  Such role-playing offers opportunities for developing social skills, exchanging ideas, giving and taking directions, and also working out sequences.


Library Center:

The library center is a cozy spot in the classroom with a variety of books available for the child to read.  It helps children identify the relationship between language and print. Children will be able to choose a book of their liking to read individually or with a friend.  The library center will teach children a love and appreciation of books and literature.



Manipulative materials are small objects in which children build, play, or construct.  These materials offer children the opportunity to enhance the development of logical thinking, expand learning in math and science, develop new vocabulary and concepts, help in the development of small muscle control and eye hand coordination, and also to enrich social skills.


Music and Movement Center:

Music helps develop children’s language, math, social, and listening skills.  The children engage with each other through music and movement activities.  This center also helps to develop a child’s ability to participate in a group, express emotion, improve balance and coordination, and advance small motor skills.


Sand and Water Center:

Children will have the opportunity to work with natural materials in the sand and water center.  In today’s world of brick, concrete, and plastic, it is important for the child to explore natural materials such as water, sand, clay, and dirt.  Experience with these materials is related to discoveries that are essential to the growth of math and science skills.


Writing Center:


The writing center is a place where students can practice the various stages of writing.  The colorful materials will encourage children to explore how letters look, how they compare to each other, and how they combine to form words.
