3 Year Old Program

  • Must be 3 years old by Oct. 1 and potty trained
  • Program runs from 9:30 am-1:30 pm
  • Three options to choose from:
    Two day (Mon/Tues)
    Three day (Wed/Thurs/Fri)
    Five day (Mon-Fri)

Our 3 year old program is designed to provide experiences that focus on exploration and whole-child development. This class provides parents with a two day option (Mon/Tues), and three day option (Weds/Thurs/Fri) or a five day option (Mon-Fri). Our 3s teachers plan meaningful hands-on experiences that are engaging and balanced, providing both child-directed and teacher-directed parts of the school day. Children will be exposed to experiences that support learning in all areas of development including:


  • Creative expression through art, music, and movement
  • Sensory exploration
  • Language and literacy skills through dramatic play, stories, and songs
  • Manipulative and motor skills
  • Exposure to math concepts and operations
  • Social and emotional skills through interaction with their school family, including teachers and peers
  • Spiritual development through daily prayers, Christian stories and songs

Parents receive a weekly Connection Letter from teachers that describes the activities that have taken place in the classroom throughout the week. This letter provides a bridge between home and school that allows parents to get a snapshot of what their children have been learning and what they can reinforce at home.

In order to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Colorado, St. James Preschool will align with the metro area school districts and remain closed for the rest of the school year.
