Look at what happens in Pre-K 3!

Students are actively engaged in learning centers throughout their morning routine. They have opportunities to explore, investigate, and create in multiple capacities. Students are instructed by a music teacher twice a week where they delight in learning classics such as Los Mananitas and preparing for special programs that take place throughout the year. They have an early lunch at 11:00 and lay down for an afternoon nap at noon. They have quite a lot to share about their experiences in Pre-K 3.
