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 observation they are supported with social interactions and problem solving skills. The three year olds are developmentally ready for more critical thinking and exercise that through their classroom and enrichment programs. 
All Three year children will have lunch followed by an approximate 2 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.


Aftercare is available from 3:00-5:30 p.m.

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