Early Three Year Old Program

Tuesdays & Thursdays/Wednesdays & Fridays from 8:45 am to 11: 30 am


Program Description


This is usually your child’s first experience in a preschool setting and serves as an introduction to the preschool learning experience. Our short 2 and ½ hour day allows enough time for your child to develop socialization skills and to begin building the skills needed for preschool.


The program provides a variety of learning experiences through music, art and play. The teachers encourage your child’s new found independence in a safe and nurturing environment; helping each child grow into the special person that they are.


Our small classes of 7 children with a teacher and an assistant provides for intense individual attention and instruction.
