The K3 Class
Our Threes learn through play and work with hands-on manipulatives to explore new concepts. Children work in both large and small groups to promote teamwork. The morning circle time includes songs and games that introduce the calendar, weather, the Pledge of Allegiance and the theme of the week. The class has a dedicated Chapel lesson each week to explore Bible themes. They also enjoy music class each week.
Our K3 curriculum focuses on developing the whole child – physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually.
