3-Year-Old Program

Our 3-year-old program is designed for children who are continuing to develop language classification and fine motor skills.  These classes consist of a comprehensive program, which stresses the child’s individual development and awareness. 

 

By examining the child’s own world, to include: nature, the seasons, community, family, etc., children become more aware of themselves and others around them. The program incorporates science, math, cooking, indoor/outdoor play, and arts and crafts activities. Activities are planned in a manner, which help develop responsibility and independence, along with sensitivity toward others.
