Q.

3-year old quite ''sexual''

hi there
I am a creche teacher and have a 3-year old boy in my class. He is very sweet and intelligent, but seems to be very sexually aware. He will stare at the teachers'' breasts, even though they are covered. When we sing and dance, he stares at our breasts  he looks for every opportunity to caress our breasta and bottoms  he wants to watch the girls go to the toilet. Am I being paranoid - is this normal behaviour for his age? None of the other boys display this type of behaviour  we discuss our bodies and how we do not touch each others private parts. Please advise.

This is normal for a child of this age and is all due to a natural curiosity. It has no actual sexual implication.
