Our Preschool Program

Triple R provides preschool from 8:30 to 11:30 AM every morning. Preschool is an integral part of our all-day childcare program, and is also available as a separate program, if your child does not require childcare. Our curriculum begins at the infant stage and continues through school-age. We provide age appropriate learning based on the needs of the individual child, preparing your child both academically and socially for kindergarten and elementary school.

The basis of our children's curriculum is the Pinnacle curriculum from ChildCare Education Institute. This curriculum helps us ensure that every classroom is meeting the children's needs, abilities, and interests. Below are some of the concepts the children work on in our preschool program. (Note: this list is not all-inclusive, but will give you a general idea of the topics covered.)
