About NorthLeaf Pre-3s

Children have a natural ability to learn and grow through play. As they explore the world around them through their play, they begin to find their place in it. The Pre-3s Class encourages a child’s natural curiosity through its play-based curriculum, sunlit classroom setting, and spacious outdoor play areas. 

The Pre-3s Class is for children who will be 2 years old by August 31st. The class is taught by Teacher Apurva and meets twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

Each class includes…

  • Free play at the various centers in the classroom – including art, sensory, dramatic play, block, fine motor manipulative, library, and more; 
  • Circle time featuring music, singing, movement, and stories;
  • Snack and small group time;
  • Large motor play in the outdoor play areas;
  • Closing circle time to say goodbye.
