Overview

Our Three-Year-Old curriculum nurtures a child's natural love for learning and exploring, promoting 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, while learning how to listen carefully and follow directions.

Our classroom is equipped with different learning centers to promote learning through play and by stimulating the natural curiosity of our students.
