Preschool (3 yrs)


Three year old children learn best through hands on activities that allow them to explore and develop their curiosity. They are still very independent at this age and insist on doing things themselves. At this age, they begin to play in groups instead of parallel playing. Our caregivers provide an environment that is nurturing, safe and positive for your child to explore and play. Listed below are some of the skills your child will be introduced to while in the Three Year Old Room. These skills are introduced and incorporated through literature, centers and free play.
