4’s/Kindergarten Readiness Programs

      Our program emphasizes all areas of a young child’s development, from self-awareness, to relationships, to            academics. Focusing on key developmental milestones, we prepare students for success in every aspect of their educational journey.
 

PROGRAM

Our 4’s program is designed to thoughtfully prepare our young students for Kindergarten in a loving, Christian classroom environment. Our 4’s teachers enhance learning through both large and small group instruction. Small group activities give teachers an opportunity to provide one-on-one instruction, and to carefully assess student progress. Teachers reinforce age-appropriate social and behavioral expectations. Our students are taught to pray thoughtfully, follow Christ’s example, and to think of others.

 
 

CURRICULUM

Children in our 4’s classes participate in structured activities in the areas of pre-reading, speaking and writing instruction, small and gross motor development, mathematics, science, faith and  music with kindergarten readiness           as one of our mail goals.          Circle time may often include a more in-depth discussion about the week’s theme, the Bible lesson presented, alphabet letters or mathematics. Children are taught to work cooperatively and independently, follow directions, listen attentively and to interact  constructively with peers and adults.
