3's Program Details

Class Schedule:

Three year old classes are held on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 9:00 - 11:30. Two teachers and up to 14 students, along with an adult volunteer, participate in the class each day.

In order to enroll, children must turn three before December 31st. Children must be toilet trained, in underpants, before the start of school.  

Special Day /Volunteers:

During the Covid 19 pandemic we have to suspend parent involvement in the classroom. We look forward to welcoming you back into our classroom again.  

On your child’s special day, they take on the roll of line leader, calendar and weather reporter in addition to setting the table for their classmates. Any significant adult in your child’s life is welcome in the classroom as a volunteer. We ask enrolled families to volunteer only 3 days over the course of the school year.  We welcome you more often if you are able to help.

A typical day for our students allows a variety of choice time and structured time while remembering that outside play is crucial to their development.
