1. OUR THREES PROGRAM PROVIDES AN INTRODUCTION TO THE SKILLS AND CONCEPTS LISTED AT RIGHT. WE UTILIZE CREATIVE CURRICULUM IN EACH CLASSROOM WHICH ALLOWS EACH CHILD TO EXPLORE AND LEARN HANDS-ON. KIDS’ STUFF RECOGNIZES THAT EACH CHILD LEARNS AT HIS/HER OWN PACE. FOR INSTANCE, SOME OLDER THREE-YEAR-OLDS AND YOUNG FOUR-YEAR OLDS LEARN DIFFERENTLY THAN YOUNGER THREE-YEAR-OLDS. THEY HAVE DIFFERENT NEEDS AND WANTS, AND ARE CAPABLE OF RATIONALIZING MORE THAN THEIR YOUNGER COUNTERPARTS.

CURRICULUM | INFANT/TODDLER/2s | 3s | VPK | K/1

We offer a Bridge Room at this level to provide additional academic challenges for those children who are socially and cognitively able to accept more, and would benefit from, a more advanced curriculum.


Older three-year and young four-year old children in a Bridge Room are generally more socially mature and will be exposed to academics that will emerge in VPK, such as word families and site words.

This experience provides a safe and positive bridge – first step – from their defined program to the greater independence of a preschool program. Bridge Room classes afford an opportunity for children to build confidence, gain valuable social interaction skills, and cultivate a positive self-image through the support of our experienced teachers.
