I am 3 years old, I am a Ladybug.


Our preschool builds on each child's natural desire to learn new things and become self-reliant.  We work with children to develop skills in language, listening, making new friends, and following directions.  We support their growing sense of self-esteem and confidence by carefully planning challenges that have high chances for success.  We have created a year-round curriculum that focuses on universal age-appropriate activities and learning objectives such as: advanced recognition of numbers, shapes, and colors, sign language, etc.  Potty training assistance is available.  At three years old, your child should be able to:
