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
