Preschool Four-Year-Old Program
Three day (MWF), Four day (M-TH), Five day (M-F): Four (4) by 8/31/2018
The four-year-old program encourages children to look for peer relationships, to play cooperatively with others as well as alongside them, to share, contribute and interact with others in a group, to explore and to create! At the same time, the children’s confidence and self-esteem are strengthened. Programs consist of a vast array of thematic units that concentrate on continuing to develop social skills while introducing kindergarten readiness skills. We use a multisensory approach to handwriting and teachers encourage children to be curious in a fun, exciting, and developmentally appropriate way.
