Preschool 3s

Welcome to where our youngest Falcons thrive. In recognizing the various needs of three-year-old children, we offer a three (3) and five (5) day option, as well as two drop off times (7:30 or 9:00). The days are filled with predictable routines, hands on learning opportunities, songs, movement, letters, numbers, play and so much more. Holy Spirit Afterschool Care is available.

Students entering PreK 3’s must be 3-years old by August 1.

In the event that more students register than available space, the following preference guidelines will be used:

  1. Siblings of students currently enrolled in K –8.
  2. Members of Holy Spirit Parish.
  3. Catholic members from other parishes.
  4. Non-Catholic students.(The August 1st cut-off date is in line with kindergarten admissions. Children must be 5 by August 1st to enter kindergarten.)

Three-year olds bring a special addition to our school. What sets three year old children apart? Three-year olds have a newfound ability to express themselves in words and ideas. We will foster this growth during daily small group learning, morning meetings and daily routines. We will focus all these activities into building more complex social skills, emerging self-awareness, and developing the groundwork for a lifelong love of learning.

Fun is a priority in Pre-K, but did you also know that what makes our PreK unique is our curriculum? We use a continuity of standards starting in PreK that continues all the way through 8th grade so learning builds in a logical way.

In PreK 3s, our heavy math driven curriculum develops higher order thinking and creates a strong base for future concepts in math and language development. Curriculum-specific language follows them through 1st grade as they learn to recognize and write their names, rote count, one to one correspondence, cardinal order, and simple addition and subtraction concepts.
