Our Three-Year-Old curriculum nurtures a child's natural love for learning and exploring. We promote literacy, language skills, math and science concepts, art, music, movement, and an awareness of God's love for self and others. We spend time helping each child adjust to a routine by listening carefully and following directions.
Our classroom is equipped with different learning centers to promote learning through play and stimulate the natural curiosity of our students.

Throughout the year, we have parties for the various holidays and celebrate each child’s birthday. We celebrate Jesus’ birth in December. In addition, we host a Valentine’s Tea for our Moms or Dads. Our class trip is to Benner’s Farm in May. We have a literacy program- Sam Bear by Amy Hest. Each child has a turn to have Sam for a week. During that week, they are Star of the Week, at the conclusion a parent comes in to share the Star Poster and read their child’s favorite story from home.
