Three Year Olds

Program for Three Year Olds

The threes program is set up for play that enhances the future mastery of specific skills. They engage in fine motor and language games that prepare them for writing and letter recognition. Through a variety of activities and teacher observations they are supported with social interactions and problem solving skills. The three year olds are developmentally ready for more critical thinking and exercises that they receive through their classroom and enrichment programs. 

All three year children will have lunch followed by an approximate two hour rest time in their classroom. There is a school lunch option available at an additional fee or children can bring a lunch from home.

After Care

After Care is available from 3-5:30pm. with the exception of early dismissal days on Wednesdays. Wednesday After Care is from 2:30 - 5:30 p.m.

All students are eligible to stay for After Care on their regularly scheduled days of school. After Care is intended to be a less structured, relaxing environment where the children enjoy playing in several of our outdoor environments. The children may also participate in art activities, games, outdoor play and are given an afternoon snack. If your child does not attend After Care regularly the teachers must be informed daily by email.
