Do Re Mi Three's
Age 3 by December 1 of the school year
Do Re Mi Academy’s alternative to ordinary preschool will uniquely captivate your child’s imagination and make learning a truly joyful experience. At Do Re Mi Academy we believe children learn best when nurtured in a loving and caring environment. Your child’s natural curiosity will be encouraged while maintaining the freedom to develop at his/her own pace. The small group setting balances your child’s need for socialization with necessary focus and attention that each individual preschooler requires. The gifted staff at the Do Re Mi Academy is dedicated to excellence in instruction, environment and curriculum ensuring an enjoyable, enriching experience for your child’s first years of school.
Do Re Mi Three’s is a creative and engaging ‘Adventures in Music’ curriculum that will promote learning through music, movement and dramatic play, with an introductory emphasis on academics. Students will experience a variety of enriching musical activities that will lay the foundation for more formal musical instruction continued in the Do Re Mi Four’s class and beyond. Academic features will include recognizing and tracing letters and numbers, recognizing and organizing shapes to create pictures, and understanding simple pathways and associations. Thematic elements in the curriculum are highlighted via songs, instrument play, and crafts. Examples of fun themes are “Seasons”, “Weather”, “Transportation”, “Animals Around the World”, “People in Our City” and “Instrument Families and the Orchestra”.
A typical Three’s class daily schedule will begin with explore and welcome time, when teachers will provide engaging activities, such as blocks, train set, puzzles, blackboards, and pretend play, with a background musical track to accompany their activities. The teachers participate with the kids and it is an important time for to share, socialize and interact. Next, circle time is a structured questions and answers time using songs, props, and instruments. Classes also include table and workbook time, arts and crafts, and snack and story time. Large motor skills will be emphasized during our gym and tumbling activity. The day is ended with music and movement, and the Do Re Mi Goodbye Song signals the end of class. Your child will love the playful creativity of the Do Re Mi Three’s class!
Activities each week will center around the theme, whether it’s drumming the beat to the sounds of a clock ticking for a unit on time, or running like a cat and tiptoeing like a mouse to reinforce fast and slow beats. The last five minutes of each day, parents are invited to join us for a musical activity and the Do Re Mi Goodbye song. Your child will love the fun and excitement of the Toddler Discovery Class! If your child continues to our Three’s and Four’s program they will also be exposed to pitch instruments like the recorder and the piano.
