The purpose of this class is to show your child that learning is fun! Through songs, stories and play we work on learning our colors, shapes, numbers and letters. Along with our parents, we will reinforce beginning potty skills.
The objective in this class is to teach children basic preschool comprehension. Letters, numbers, colors and shapes are reinforced through craft projects, songs, discussion, and science experiments. We provide a nurturing classroom that consists of comforting hurt feelings and boo-boos, to embracing each child with endless hugs and high fives.
The primary purpose of the 4 Year Old Class is Kindergarten readiness. We focus on practicing and mastering preschool skills, so each child will easily transition into Kindergarten. We incorporate both teacher-directed learning, in large and small groups, and self-directed learning, such as center time, into our daily routine. Our classroom provides successful opportunities for young learners in a nurturing, fun and developmentally appropriate environment. A positive experience in our 4 Year Old Program will help to build a solid foundation for future learning.
