Preschool Threes


The Funsteps Preschool Program starts with our focus on the whole child and their individual needs. Our goal within this program is to identify, build and develop each child’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical strengths and interests. This goal is achieved through the personal attention of our dedicated and qualified teachers, stimulating and developmentally appropriate preschool curriculum, and welcoming classroom environment that provides endless opportunities to explore and learn.


Classroom and Environment

Our preschool classroom is a welcoming environment that is safe, positive, motivating and Fun! The Funsteps preschool classroom is designed to provide three year old children with a variety of engaging toys, books, hands on activities and educational learning centers that foster all areas of their development. The classroom promotes learning and social interaction with their peers and teachers as well as opportunities for individual play, rest, and exploration.

Funsteps has a large, fenced in playground for our preschoolers immersed with a variety of age appropriate toys and apparatuses for them to explore, play and enhance their gross motor skill development.



Each preschool teacher is certified in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid and has specialized training and education in Early Care and Education meeting the Teacher requirements and qualifications for the State of Delaware. With their warm, welcoming personalities and unconditional love for children, our teachers nurture and inspire all children to play, explore, create, discover and learn. Funsteps teachers model and teach developmentally acceptable behaviors and expectations of the classroom while embracing each child’s needs and individuality. Parental communication and involvement is encouraged and promoted through daily verbal communication at drop off and pick up and

opportunities to talk to the teacher throughout the day.
