Ages 3 years - 4 years
The young preschool child is eager to pursue their autonomy.
Children in this age group are excited by their increased ability to communicate with their peers, and are deeply curious with many questions. Our teachers in our preschool program strive to provide opportunities for the preschool child to play cooperative games, explore the answers to their questions and their newfound independence, and continue to expand their language and self-help skills.
