I'm looking for information about the best gifted (and other) academic
private preschools/PK3 programs for a 3.5 year old in Broward County,
Florida (Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse
Point, etc.).

I plan on applying to Pine Crest in Fort Lauderdale next year (2007 -
2008), but they don't have a three-year-old program (children must be
4 by Sept. 1 and my child won't be 4 until March), so I'm looking for
a PK3 program that is on par with Pine Crest.

I'm looking for a strong academic preschool program rather than just
daycare. My son can fully read independently and do simple math
(addition, subtraction and multiplication) and I'm looking for a
program that supports and encourages this rather than is frustrated
with it.

I need to know:
* Teacher-to-student ratio and how it compares with typical private PK3 programs
* Curriculum (What is a typical day's plan? a typical week's?)
* Teacher credentials (Is their first language English? Do they have
bachelor's degrees? Master degrees?)
* Are music/art/physical programs taught? How often?
* Are computers used?
* Is there a PTA for the PK3 program?
* Are parents allowed in the classroom as teacher helpers? If so, how
often and how long? (I would like to be in the classroom one day a
week if possible.)
* How many students per class?
* Is reading taught at this level or only alphabet or nothing at all? 
* What kind of math will be taught?
* How does the school deal with students that are more advanced than their class? 

***Every school must still be accepting applications for the
three-year-old programs for this current school year (2006 - 2007)
