Three-year-olds with the “Let Me Do It!“ attitude need integrated, hands-on learning experiences. Experimentation and exploration build higher-level thinking, language, math, social and motor skills; threes love fun and challenging experiences. The 3K teachers offer activities to creatively stimulate minds to the highest level possible by partnering with parents to provide a strong spiritual foundation in a loving, nurturing Christ-centered environment.
Our 3-K Preschool Program operates on a set schedule with instructional time beginning at 9:00 AM. Days are busy with circle time, centers, show-n-tell, Spanish & Music classes, etc. all before rest time which begins at 12:45. Supplemental planned activities, that are appropriate for this age, continue throughout the entire day.
3K classrooms are set up to allow for individual exploration and learning. Learning environments such as: Reading/Listening Corner, Science Centers, Dramatic/Home Center, Block, Sand Play, Small Manipulatives, and most children’s favorite, Art Area. New Items are periodically introduced to further their understanding of the coordinated weekly/ monthly theme.
Extra-curricular activities include but are not limited to Chapel, P.E., Music and Movement, Spanish, Art, Library, Science/Discovery classes, Spanish, and a Media Lab equipped with books, Story Time Area, and Computers.
