Preschool Three’s

Our school philosophy is to provide a loving and nurturing environment for our preschool students to explore and experience the world around them.  Our preschool program is designed to provide experiences for developing skills in:

  • Social development
  • Emerging independence
  • Making choices, playing and sharing with classmates
  • Building self-help skills
  • Following multi-step directions
  • Recognizing basic shapes and colors
  • Beginning to learn upper case letter recognition
  • Recognition of first name
  • Developing a comfortable grip with classroom tools (paint brush, pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, glue sticks)

Some learning activities that will be offered to your child during our mornings at TBA are:

  • Daily circle time/calendar
  • Monthly Chapel with Pastor Nancy
  • Monthly Play and Praise with Mrs. Shaw
  • Monthly Music Manners and Me class with Mrs. Deborah
  • Monthly YOGA classes with Ms. Liz, a certified Yoga teacher
  • Art projects using a variety of small motor skills
