Three-year-olds are at an age where they are developing social skills and learning how to interact with their peers. Our program provides opportunities for children to socialize with other children their age, practice turn-taking and sharing, and learn how to resolve conflicts.
Children learn how to share and take turns and learn how to deal with their emotions around other people.
A child's speech and language development becomes more advanced starting around age 3 through age 5.
Cognitive skills allow children to understand the relationships between ideas, to grasp the process of cause and effect and to improve their analytical skills.
Building independence gives your child a sense of importance and belonging which is essential for building social relationships.

Schedule. 3-year-olds benefit from structure.
We have two program offerings for three-year-olds. 2-Day AM and 3-Day PM.
2-Day AM meets two mornings each week. This program emphasizes "learn through play" with activities designed to strengthen motor skills and boost cognitive development. Music is often integrated and imaginative play is encouraged. Letters and numbers are a big part of the curriculum. By the end of this program children will be able to take part in coordinated song and dance, recognize their name in print, and understand their place in the rhythm of the classroom.
3-Day PM meets three afternoons each week. The curriculum mirrors that of the 2-Day AM with an extra day for practice and enrichment.
Parents are encouraged to pack their kiddos a snack.
Environment. A supportive space.
Our program provides opportunities for children to grow and practice self-help skills, such as using the bathroom independently.
Our teachers and staff create positive relationships with children and families.
Children benefit from a strong partnership between parents and teachers. Our program fosters open communication with families in our positive and safe environments.
Teachers will conduct regular check-ins, provide progress reports, and parent-teacher conferences to keep families informed of their child's development.
Ages 24 - 36 Months
Toddlers are at a critical stage of development so we tailor the curriculum to their individual unqiue needs.
