Four-Year-Old Class

Four-year-old parents have the option of a two day or three day program for their child. Children must be four by December 1, 2017.

Our four-year-old classes meet Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:00-11:30 a.m. (This class is currently full), Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00-11:30 a.m. or Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 12:30-3:00 p.m. You may choose to add our Friday morning 9:00-11:30 a.m. class to create a three day week for your child.

Curriculum
Zoo-phonics is one element of our curriculum. Each letter of the alphabet has a character and a movement attached to it. Learning and remembering the letters and sounds becomes easier with this approach.  We also incorporate various elements of the Handwriting Without Tears.

Our core curriculum is made up of planned units of study including oceans, birds, mammals, reptiles, and insects. Units are taught not only to increase knowledge but also to demonstrate God’s power and diversity in creation. We expand our curriculum through the use of various math manipulatives, art projects, show and tell, talking and listening, story time, exercises, music and finger plays. The emphasis of this class is kindergarten readiness.  We will take at least three field trips throughout the year to enhance our curriculum.
