3 to 5 Preschool has been a non-profit school in Sitka, Alaska since 1970 whose mission is to create an exciting and supportive learning environment where all members of the school feel they are accepted, nurtured, valued and loved. We currently offer one morning class and one afternoon class four days per week, and we are licensed to enroll 25 children per class. Our children range from 34 months to 80 months of age. We are currently located on the Sheldon Jackson campus.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
At 3 to 5 Preschool, our philosophy is that young children learn best when provided with a safe, structured, and exciting learning environment. Our teachers believe that students excel with an equal approach to both emphasis on play as well as enhanced curriculum. Both our indoor and outdoor environments provide many opportunities for exploring and engaging in a world of activities. Through child directed and teacher facilitated play and a structured class schedule, the children acquire self-confidence, independence, excitement in learning, social skills, joy in friendship, self-discipline, curiosity and physical coordination. We keep our tuition as low as possible so that our young families are able to give their children the advantage of preschool. Many studies have shown that children who attend preschool are much more likely to do well in school and go on to excel in college, throughout their lives and to then give back to their own communities. We have in previous years and will continue to use funds received from the generous donations of fellow Alaskans from Pick. Click. Give. to provide scholarship funds for the little children of our lowest income families.
