Our 4-year-old program will provide your child with the necessary skills needed to prepare them for a healthy transition into kindergarten. They work in interest areas such as the block, cars & truck center and a child favorite, their dramatic play center. The children also work in learning centers that are divided up into Literacy, Math, Science, and Manipulative. We introduce letters and sounds phonetically to develop the foundation for early reading and spelling. Writing skills and number concepts are strengthened in this class as well as comprehension to stories read to them in school. We introduce students to Fundations and writing workshop in this class to familiarize them with some of the things they will be doing entering Kindergarten. We discuss the calendar, weather, seasons, and love working on our computers. We have a Spanish word of the week and enjoy learning a new language. Our 4’s will focus on themes such as All about me, the classroom environment, Nutrition and our healthy bodies, Solar System, hibernation, land animals and their habitats, Marine animals and Oceans, The 7 Continents, Health Safety and dinosaurs just to name a few. Music, singing, dancing and outdoor play (weather permitting) are always a part of our day. A Cap and Gown Graduation Ceremony to celebrate your child’s achievements ends our school year in mid-June. A three to five day schedule is advised in this class to help your child make a healthy transition into kindergarten.
