    Red Room
    3 years old

    The Red Room children at Southeast Community College Child Development Center are around three years of age. Three-year-old children typically have an excess of energy. They are curious about their surroundings and enjoy being a helper. They want to play with their friends, but need support and guidance to accomplish successfully becoming a friend. We plan activities around the children's interests as well as their desire to be friends. The children have child friendly jobs that they choose daily; such as a Group Leader or a Toy Helper. They have responsibilities as well. Some things they are responsible for are:

    • picking up after themselves
    • putting their belongings in their locker or cubby
    • cleaning up their meal area

    The Red Room at SCC is an active and exciting place to be.
