Lively and adventurous four-year-olds may seem to be quite secure and comfortable with themselves: boasting, bragging, and exaggerating. But emotions can also be uncertain, with laughter and tears following each other in quick succession.
Our program prepares your child for kindergarten. Each child learns at a different pace and in a different way with preparation, guidance, and lots of love and compassion, your child will reach a level of success. Each child leaves the program with the opportunity to have a good foundation, positive self-esteem and success. A keystone in this program is the Life Skills Curriculum which, among other goals, helps children learn how to make “good” choices.
The four-year-old room (Pre-K II) is one of the most important classes of a child’s education. In a warm, safe, loving atmosphere, your child feels more comfortable and willing to learn.
