Three-K Program

Downtown Campus and Gardens Campus

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. School days are busy with circle time, centers, show and tell, Spanish, music classes, etc. This is all before rest time which begins at 12:45 AM. 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 include activities such as the reading/listening corner, science center, dramatic/home center, blocks, sand play, small manipulatives, and most children’s favorite, the 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, and a media lab that is equipped with books, a story time area, and computers.
