The three-year-old year marks the beginning of empowered independence. At this stage of development, children are refining their self-help skills and beginning to make choices about friendships and play activities. Three-year-olds are also little sponges who love learning about the world around them. Exploring pretend worlds in stories, experimenting in science, learning about music and cultures from around the world, and problem-solving in our S.T.R.E.A.M. activities are all daily delights for our students. Weather permitting; our students also get ample opportunities to play outside on our large playground to develop their physical bodies.

In the three-year-old program, children begin formalized religious instruction. Using familiar stories, songs, and the world around them, children are introduced to the basic concepts of our faith.
