Early Preschool (3 - 3.5 yrs)

The Early Preschool program offers meaningful, sensory-based activities and learning experiences.

Your child's developing independence is nurtured.

This classroom has a daily routine that includes both individual and small-group experiences. Our exclusive, milestone-focused curriculum, Learn from the Start(TM), is driven by key developmental milestones specific to children preparing to enter preschool.

We emphasize your child's development, rather than specific age, because all children grow and learn at their own pace, and in their own unique way. Learning experiences are designed to address the individual needs and abilities of each child, in each classroom.

As a Early Preschooler, your child is transitioning from a toddler to a preschool student. Chatting with friends increases verbal and social skills. Solving shape puzzles strengthens problem-solving skills, while drawing and painting nurture creativity. Early Preschool teachers work to foster self-esteem during one-on-one journal time and in group activities. As preparation for moving into our exclusive Tutor Time® LifeSmart™ preschool curriculum, we introduce one concept at a time, so your child feels proud, not frustrated.

Because this curriculum recognizes that there are many different ways to be smart, your child will learn to love learning. And that means your Early Preschooler will really be prepared.
