THREE-YEAR-OLD CLASSES – The three-year-old class has an emphasis on language development and beginning social skills.  The activities are designed to help children to begin to develop self esteem.  The art, language and motor skills are taught through small groups.  Their week includes show and tell, library and bike day.  Classes are offered either two or three days a week.

The two-day class is offered on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. Children need to be three years of age by December 31st of the school year.

The three-day program is offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m.  Children going into this class must be three by December 31st of the school year.  Children do not need to be potty trained in order to attend the three-year-old program.  The ratio of staff to student is 1:7.  This ratio is smaller than that required by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services which licenses early childhood education programs.
