Preschool

This class is for children who have turned three and are fully potty trained. Three-year-olds love to explore new ways to use materials – sometimes inappropriate ways, but nevertheless their minds are always working overtime.  The challenge is to help channel this natural creativity and never ending energy into something productive. Our staff is up to that task! Our program provides just the right combination of free exploration and structured Learning Centers, tempered with reminders about personal space, body awareness and mutual respect. Shapes, Colors and Letters are introduced as weekly themed activities which incorporate, sequencing, counting and sorting as part of the experience.
