Preschool for 3 Year Olds

This program continues to build on the social and emotional skills that the children are developing. It is a theme base program introducing Math, Language, Science, Social Study, Art and Music skills through themes that engage the child in interactive learning. This program uses Creative Curriculum as the teachers’ guide.

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 social groups within the classroom.
