Our Upper Campus Threeís program has a small
class size that allows children to grow and learn in a nurturing and
exciting environment. The smaller size of the campus allows us unique

community and family.
The children in the Threeís class have two main
teachers that they spend circle time, snack and lunch with, but also have
access to the other teachers during inspirations, discovery and exploration
time. This allows them to have a small home base, while being able to
explore the entire center on their own, at their own pace.
Inside, the children can explore the Practical
Life, Science, Math and Language areas, as well as using the Playnasium for
gross motor activities and the Art Studio where masterpieces are always

ride scooters and tricycles on our Great Highway. Our treehouse is our
lovely dramatic playhouse and it joins our courtyard community so we can
mail letters and walk babies, just as we see these activities done by
Our program includes lunch time, which is served
family style with the children and teachers eating freshly prepared food
together. After lunch, the children participate in either Mandarin or
Spanish lessons, depending on your preference for your child.

family, as we have many activities throughout the year. These activities
include our Ice Cream Social, Fall Festival, Momís and Dadís Days, Holiday
Sing and Spring Salad Day. We also invite parents to come in to participate
in special projects throughout the year. We especially enjoy having our
parents help us in our gardens and help cook delicious things we make from
The children spend the year making close
friendships and develop a love of learning and sense of self.
