Classes for our four year olds are available three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM. We also offer the option of “Extended hours” that extend the day to 1:00 PM, (children bring a lunch for extended hours.)
Added to our current four year old program is a pre-kindergarten enrichment “Fours Fridays.” This is intended to focus on children who are four and a half and delaying entry to kindergarten. The program challenges the children, enriches their listening skills, fine motor skills, strengthens their social and emotional development, also bringing an opportunity to increase reading readiness and literacy skills. Throughout the program, early math skills, sequencing and problem solving are reinforced.
Children will experience additional readiness activities, beyond the typical four year old curriculum. These activities coupled with ample playtime will give a late birthday four year old the increased self-esteem and confidence needed for a full day kindergarten program.
Activities include: more time for learning letters and numbers, developing fine motor skills (pencils, crayons, and scissors), improving listening skills, sharing and enriched literacy activities and additional learn & play time.
Field trips are typically held on Fridays.
