There is nothing wrong with a 3 year old being a dreamer. The teacher needs to be more specific and give details of what she is observing at school throughout the school day.

What is he doing in each of the activities they are expected to engage in? Is there any fluctuation in his levels of attention and engagement?

Perhaps the material and activities being presented are just not engaging him and a different approach is needed. I would recommend a meeting with the teacher, and the head of the pre-school, so that the teacher’s observations and concerns can be explained clearly, and an appropriate plan of action developed.
