The 3-Year-Old Program

  • Children must turn Three by September 30, 2020

    Three-year-olds are full of new skills and emerging independence! Our staff is trained to guide children during this time of exploration and exuberance, and they delight in all the ways three-year-olds grow into themselves. Children who attend this program must have independent bathroom skills and no longer be reliant on pull-ups.

    During this three-year-old year, the goal is to help children:

    • Take turns
    • Learn to make choices and recognize limits
    • Make new friends
    • Try new activities
    • Feel comfortable in a classroom setting away from you

    • Share toys and materials
    • Learn about talking to God
    • Help others
    • Develop language and literacy skills
