Seahorses (3 to 4 years)
Children between the ages of 3 years and 4 years are in the Seahorses. In this group, they are given more opportunities to interact as their social skills develop. Educators also focus on building an understanding of what is good to do and what is not. The idea that actions have consequences is also developed as they build confidence and independence.
With the support of the group leaders, children also begin to build concentration skills and undertake group activities in which the concepts of turn taking and listening are further developed.
The needs of children at this age can vary, so educators maintain a flexible program to ensure they can accommodate all the individual needs.
