MDO 3 is our program for 3-year-olds

Our approach to learning focuses on physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.  Weekly themes are designed to fill our students with pride and a desire to learn more.

We offer a wide range of developmentally appropriate toys and activities to encourage exploration and independence.

Curriculum is designed around the early learning and development standards created by the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood Education.

Children attend one or two days a week from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Our class size remains small and well below state-required ratio

Opportunities for family involvement are created through our annual art show, guest speakers, quarterly newsletters and more.

Children do not need to be potty-trained
