Preschool for 3-Year-Olds

Building Confidence Through Individualized Instruction 

Ivybrook Academy’s three-year-old Preschool program is designed to take children to the next level of social, emotional, and academic growth. Each child’s day includes a variety of hands-on activities that encourage learning and socialization. When children enter the three-year-old classroom, they will have daily exposure to small-group learning, scientific investigations, creative expression, and mathematical reasoning.

Our three-year-old students bring energy to the classroom that is embraced and welcomed, and our teaching team takes their energy and funnels it into a zest for learning. Students will participate in customized learning activities that meet each of their specific needs. They’ll learn how to write their name and recognize letters, numbers, shapes, and colors, and they will be taught basic directional skills, how to identify emotions, and more.
