Every child's development is unique and complex. For this reason, the Lightning Bug teachers celebrate each child as a unique individual. Three-year-olds learn primarily through exploring and using all the senses. While playing, they can ignore distractions and focus on the task at hand. They will persist in completing something that is a bit difficult and will begin to think creatively and methodically when solving problems. Our goal is to provide a rich, safe and quality environment through which a child may explore.
As they develop more independence, children this age begin to have real friendships with other children. The Lightning Bug room fosters growth in this area as children learn to empathize with each other and learn to work cooperatively.
