3 YEAR OLDS
We currently offer a full day and half day program for 3 yr olds. A child must be 3 by September 30th of the current school year in order to be enrolled in this program and must be completely potty-trained, with the exception of a pull-up for naptime, if needed.
Full Day Program
Our full day Pre-K program is open during the school day hours, 8:20 a.m. – 3:15 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students may arrive as early as 7:45 a.m. without an additional fee, but should be in their classroom by 8:20 a.m. Before and after school care is optional, for an additional fee. Parents can choose to add before and/or after care to their tuition if they need it. Please see the enrollment packet for more details regarding our extended care program. The full day program will be open all school year with only the following exceptions: Labor Day, 3 days at Thanksgiving, 3 days at Christmas, 2 days at New Year’s, Easter Monday, Memorial Day, as well as a fall and spring Teacher In-Service Day and a Parent/Teacher Conference Day. (Specific dates listed on the Pre-K calendar).
HALF DAY PROGRAM
We offer two half day options for our three year olds:
>> 5 Half Days (Monday-Friday)
>> 3 Half Days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
Our half day Pre-K program is open during the school day hours, 8:20 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and will be closed for a fall, Christmas and spring break, as well as any days the full day Pre-K is closed (see the list above). Students may arrive as early as 7:45 a.m. without an additional fee, but should be in their classroom by 8:20 a.m. There is no after care available for half day students. Students must be picked up by the posted pick up time.
Daily activities will focus on age appropriate developmental skills that support the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs of young children while promoting kindergarten readiness. The children will participate in Bible, recess, and a resource class (Spanish, art, music, library, PE) each day. Teachers will provide their class with a more detailed schedule during the first week of school.
Our 3 year olds have no more than 10 students with one teacher.
All full day preschool students will take a nap. Nap time is from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. and will last no longer than two hours. Please send in a crib size sheet and a blanket for your child to sleep on and be sure to label each item sent with your child’s name. These items will be sent home weekly to be washed.
