Four-Year-Old Classes

3-Day Tiger & 4-Day Lion Classes Final

We have two different four-year-old classes, each run by its own teacher.  Both classes emphasize cooperation, learning appropriate social and behavioral skills, and kindergarten readiness.  The four-year-olds begin to recognize that there are things going on outside of their own world.  Our units of study try and capitalize on that.  Some examples of units of study are going to the doctor, Pilgrims and Native Americans, and plants and seeds.

Both classes look at time as an important part of the learning process.  What is yesterday, today, and tomorrow?  What is the current month and day?  Every week, the children will follow a recipe and make their own snack.  Cooking is a great way for children to learn cooperation and math readiness skills!

A typical day in the four-year-old class is structured around an art activity, reading a story, free play, and going outside.  There are several stations throughout the room that enable children to work and explore independently or with one or two friends.
