    The Pre-K 3 school day STARTS AFTER and ENDS BEFORE the school day for students in grades Kindergarten through 6, so they enter and leave in the calmest of environments. The school day enfolds entirely in the Pre-K 3 classroom. 

    The program will include family events and informational workshops.

    Students enrolled in PreK3 will automatically have a spot reserved at the home school for Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK)* at age 4!
