Three Year Olds
The three-year-old will receive wider ranges of experiences and an increase in his expressive and receptive language through action work. The students will expand their knowledge of the community, the church, and the world around him. There will be a steady increase in concept development as it applies to pre-math and pre-reading skills. This time is used to help the child move from awareness of self and things in the immediate environment to a concern for others and an increased understanding of God’s love.
