  • Daily activities for our three-year-olds allow for both structured and independent learning experiences.  In addition to learning in the classroom, the children attend enrichment classes such as Art, Spanish, Music, and Library.  Children also have unstructured playtime daily where they utilize either our indoor or outdoor playground.
  • We provide a morning snack with milk and an afternoon snack with juice for your child every day.  We also provide milk for lunch.  However, parents are to provide a ready-to-eat lunch each day for their child.

Toilet Training:

  • Three-year-old children must be fully potty trained in order to attend our preschool.  This means that they are no longer wearing pull-ups/diapers, are accident free, and are able to take care of all of their toileting needs independently, including wiping themselves, without being reminded.
