Preschool for 3 Year Olds

This program continues to build on the social and emotional skills that the children are developing. Our curriculum is Children Explore Their World which is a componant of the Children Discover Their World Curricula. Grounded in science and exploration, the curriculum approaches mathmatics development, language skills, literacy and communication development, nature, science and social and emotional development through content-rich projects that build upon children’s knowledge and increase in complexity.

Our 3’s program is for children 3 years old by September 1st. Our spacious rooms allow us to offer a class size of up to 18 children with a Lead Teacher and two Teaching Assistants. This provides opportunity for multiple learning and social groups within the classroom.
