NURTURING, safe, and fun

Preschool Classroom ( 3 yr olds)

In the 3 yr old room the state required ratio is eight toddlers to one staff. In our 3 year old room we are licensed for 16 toddlers total. In this classroom we are able to provide a safe, age appropriate learning environment. Our activities we provide for the 3 year olds provide social, emotional and cognitive growth. As each child learns at their own pace we are able to accommodate our preschool plans to meet the children's needs, interests, and abilities.In this classroom the 3 year olds are able to begin to learn their self worth and gain confidence while learning through play and structured preschool time.
