Preschool Program 3’s and 4’s

Here We Grow Helps Your Child Get Ready for Kindergarten

At Here We Grow Child Development Center, we understand every child grows, develops, and learns at a different rate. Your child may already be successful with some skills and may need more time to develop others. The key is to give your child plenty of opportunities to practice and learn these skills by interacting in a classroom setting with loving teachers and friends.

Growth in the preschool years
The preschool years are marked by a period of rapid growth and development. During this time, children’s natural curiosity engages them in making sense of their environment by observing, questioning, experiencing, and experimenting. The rapid growth and development that occur during this period are the foundation for all later learning.
