3 & 4 Year Old Programs

​"Education is the most powerful weapon which  you can use to change the world". - Nelson Mandela


Children learn by doing. The school's curriculum provides a wide variety of activities using age appropriate materials to expand their learning. Structured activities are planned daily along with informal time in our various learning centers. Some of the curricular areas include:

  • Creative arts

  • Language and pre-writing activities

  • Social and self-care skills

  • Music and movement

  • Visits by community helpers

  • Outdoor play and observation

  • Pre-math games and activities

  • Science and exploring the senses
