*Curriculum is subject to change at discretion of teacher according to class needs

*Our 3 year old curriculum will follow the same basic subjects as our 4 year old classes.  We will do some different themes and activities but still follow the state outlined pre-kindergarten guidelines.  3 year olds have different needs so our curriculum will be tailored to meet their needs.
