    Prekindergarten 3 is for children who are 3 years old on or before Sept. 1 of the school year in which they are enrolling.
    Children spend a full day in a safe and nurturing environment. Pre-K 3 is designed to enhance language and communication skills, and support cognitive, physical, social and emotional development.
    Guided by the Florida Learning and Developmental Standards, Pre-K 3 provides activities in literacy, language, science, social studies, math, health and safety, art and music.

    Classes generally have 14 students and are staffed with a certified teacher and one or two associates. Classes are blended to include students with exceptional student education services.

    Follow your child’s development using the THREES Child Development Checklist & Tips booklet. To prepare your child for Pre-K 3, visit our Early Childhood Education resources page.
    Tuition for the 2018-19 school year: $75 per week plus a non-refundable registration fee of $120.00 that is applied to tuition. At select locations, the Pre-K 3 program is supported with Title I funding. Qualifying families at Title I schools do not pay tuition.
