Preschool for Age 3

Research shows that children can benefit and actively learn in a hands-on environment from a very early age. Our preschool classes for 3 year olds offer many different areas of interest to encourage various kinds of play, which is one of the most important aspects of a child's life! Other areas stressed include letters, numbers, colors, shapes and social skills. Children will be introduced to crayons, markers, scissors, paints, and glue. A balanced combination of structured and unstructured activities include story time, singing, art projects, holiday celebrations, and graduation will be the basis of these programs. Call the Oak View Center at 708-857-2200 for class availability.
