*June classes are held outdoors, camp-style (weather permitting).
3-Year Old Program
In the 3's, we help children with the developmental tasks of separating from home, sharing, taking turns and respecting others. Learning occurs through activities that involve as many of the five senses as possible, from banging on instruments to building with blocks and playing with sand. We also begin developing number and letter recognition through thoughtful play-based activities.
Children need to be 3 by December 31st of enrollment year and toilet trained the first day of school.

Tots’ afternoon Pre-K program prepares children academically and socially for a smooth transition into Kindergarten. Lessons focus on writing the letters A-Z (capital and lowercase), writing the numbers 1-10, the calendar (names of days and months), perception and developing observation skills, understanding opposites, sequence comprehension (patterns and relationships), character education (positive values and attitude development), and health (body awareness).
