Academic Threes (3 – 4 Years)

Preparing Your Child for Pre-Kindergarten


Academic Threes love to explore through hands-on activities. At Quality Time Learning Center, our child care curriculum combines our Back-to-Basics Math, Language & Literacy Program readiness activities, that are based on the best early childhood standards from across the nation. Our enriched Get Ready for Pre-K Curriculum is designed to develop important foundational skills like literacy, mathematical thinking, and problem-solving while stimulating your child’s creativity.

At this age, children require challenges, respond to motivation and crave praise. Recognizing that your three-year-old needs to be engaged and nurtured at the same time, our highly trained teachers give them both the freedom and instruction to thrive.

Fostering Your Academic Threes Love of Learning

The Academic Threes’ classroom at Quality Time is designed to help your child become a part of a learning community, where they not only build skills vital to success in Pre-Kindergarten, but also respect for others and a sense of confidence. In designated areas throughout our safe learning environment, your three-year-old will engage in a range of activities geared toward preparing them for Pre-Kindergarten and life beyond.
