Ages 3-4

As children enter our threes program, we focus on building independence and a sense of responsibility, with a growing emphasis on language and cognitive development.

Three year olds are exposed to a variety of pre-reading and pre-writing skills through storytelling, concepts of prints, and exploring writing their most important word – their names! We provide authentic opportunities for logical thinking and problem-solving, giving them critical skills that they will use throughout their lives.


Children enjoy special enrichment activities throughout the week, led by experts from other JCC departments. Sample activities include:
  • Athletics
  • Creative Movement
  • Music
  • Red Cross Certified Swimming
  • Skills and Thrills Occupational Therapy Activities
  • Judaics
  • Gardening


Families have the option of enrolling in a variety of extracurricular enrichment classes outside of their tuition, from swimming to sports to dance, and we will escort them to and from these classes! Click/tap here to see our extracurricular enrichment options.
