3-Year-Old Program

Preschool children learn and grow best when they are exploring, touching and interacting with real things and have caring people around them. Recognizing the importance of balanced growth, our program is designed to engage children in active learning opportunities that enhance a child’s emotional, social, physical and cognitive development.

The 3-year-old program is a gentle and nurturing introduction to school. Cooperation, independence, exploration, and curiosity are emphasized.  Play is integral part of the program.  Child’s play is respected and celebrated.

Our preschool programs offer parents the opportunity to be involved in the first years of your child’s school experiences. Find out more about opportunities for you to be involved here>>
