Question Advice for Dealing With A Very Hyperactive 3yr Old

Hello I am reaching out for any advice on how to work with a very hyper child in my classroom. A brief run down of this situation is I work with 2yr olds and when they are 3 they transition to pre-school. I have just recently received this child who is now 3 back into my room. She went from a class of 8 to 20 and now is back with 8. In my room she climbed furniture frequently, took other childrens food, would not sit for an art project and when was told that what she was doing was not safe or not "ok" as we say it all she would do is smile and continue on. If I had her constantly by my side she was ok. When she went to pre-school there were 20 children and a larger room her behaviour became worse and my director decided it would be best to send her back to my room for a couple months. I am thinking of a new approach to take with her and try to give as much one on one as I can. I am planning on scheduling out her day, giving transition warnings, distinguishing quiet/active time, lots of positive praise and most important goals. I would like some ideas and sugestions on things I can do with her to accomplish these.

Welcome to the forum! I hope you find some answers here - lots of good ideas.

I'm not as experienced as many here, but I know with my own and now the dck ADHD children, I had to work on TEACHING them to be quiet. I found it could be taught, but like anything else, took patience and perseverence. I started out with 5 min. quiet activities and worked my way up over months to 1/2 hour and even 1 hour of quiet activities. I made it a part of my curriculum to "teach quietness".

I'm sure others have many more great ideas on this! Wishing you the best!
