GELC Pre-School 3's Program offers opportunities to meet the needs of each child as a whole. Our classroom uses a state-approved curriculum, "Frog Street." In conjunction with the curriculum, we provide school readiness activities that help prepare the children for Pre-kindergarten and beyond. We provide children with a balance of physical activities and enriching learning activities. Through ongoing observation, assessment, and parent conferences, you will always be informed of your child's progress. ​
