The three-year-old manager of the LFCDS Preschool Farm Stand carefully counts pumpkins and gourds into a basket for his “customer.” At age three, children are eager learners who test their knowledge of the world through dramatic play and hands-on activities. They explore the world through their senses—riding tricycles, putting together puzzles, and drawing with crayons. The LFCDS Preschool program offers a developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum that builds the foundation for academic success with thematically connected, engaging activities. Children enjoy counting and measuring; listening to and dictating stories, songs, and poems; learning to write letters and numerals; going on outings; doing finger plays in Spanish; and conducting simple science experiments. 

LFCDS preschool children have the option to extend their morning through lunchtime, until 3:30 p.m., or until 6:00 p.m.
The LFCDS Preschool program is for children who have turned three on or before September 1
