Ever fancy a class for three-year-old babies? Then fancy no more as the New York City will soon roll out its ambitious plan to have three-year-old children attend their school. This plan is going to be offered for free to the many residents with the kids in New York. The plan itself scheduled to be implemented for the next four years to be able to cater to the many residents with three-year-olds. The three-year-olds to attend the schools will visit it for a whole full day and enjoy the programs lined up for children at that age.
Dubbed the “3-K” schools the estimated number of children from the city who will be eligible to attend the school is about 62,000 kids. The new schools are being hoped by many of the children parents to be a way to help their children learn new vocabularies, to help them articulate their words more well, engage in creative play with other children. Hey also hope that the schools will help their children learn to navigate their emotions and learn to start being independent enough when they are away from their parents.
The decision to come up with such schools for children at the age of three was announced by New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio at a press briefing http://nymag.com/scienceofus/2017/05/what-would-a-school-for-3-year-olds-even-look-like.html.
This decision was reached at after they had considered the decades of data that had been collected by researchers on such K-programs that have seen such children schooled away from their parents. In the programs, the children after reaching the schools in the morning would undergo a small warm up session in different play areas. Learning then would then commence with through play and hands-on activities, storytelling, art works, dress-up and pretend play, math-based games with things such as blocks and many other creative and engaging activities. Before ending their day, they would get a period of rest before later being picked up by their parents.
