Pre-Kindergarten 3 Program

Our mission to create critical thinkers, doers and explorers begins in our Pre-K classrooms. We offer a dynamic jump-start into the academic world starting at age three. Through purposeful play and innovative activities our young students learn to question, explore, think and solve problems while having a lot of fun! 

Our program offers a safe, nurturing environment and curriculum that encourages personal growth in all areas, including social-emotional development, motor skills and early academics. At the end of this unique experience, your child will be well prepared for the next step – Norfolk Collegiate’s Pre-K4 program.
