Pre-K 3 and Early Pre-school for 3 Year Olds

PreK_157x157By the age of three, your child is ready for a more structured learning environment.

We offer two classrooms for our Pre-K3 students. Our younger threes typically occupy the Leap Frogs class and older threes the Caterpillar class. Our three year old students transition between the two classes based on their age, readiness and the availability of space.

By the age of three, your child is ready for a more structured learning environment. Avalon Academy’s early pre-school Leap Frog and Caterpillar classes combine kindergarten-readiness activities with a structured Pre-K 3 curriculum. At this stage in your child’s early education, our teachers focus on developing curiosity, creative critical-thinking, building a love of learning and enhancing social skills.

The Avalon Academy Pre-K3 and early pre-school curriculum promotes:

  • Written and letter practice
  • Reading and listening practice
  • Math, measure and manipulation skills
  • Science and sensorial skills
  • Arts and crafts
  • Group and center time
  • Show and tell and oratorical skills
  • Independent play
  • Daily outdoor play
  • Enrichment programs

At the end of each school day you’ll receive a report card, which lists the day’s activities, eating and sleeping patterns and general information on your three year olds emotional and physical wellbeing.
