Four year old children of this age are energetic and very curious about their surroundings. They are exposed to many different cognitive, physical, emotional and social experiences. 4K classes meet Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday all day. Early Childhood meets Monday through Thursday, am only.
What is our 4K philosophy?
We believe that all children learn and grow at individual rates and it is our duty, as teachers, to adjust for each child's learning ability.
We believe that children of this age learn the most during their play using hands-on activities, therefore; it is our duty to set the environment so that it is the most beneficial for each child's learning ability.
We believe in providing a warm and positive classroom climate that is conducive to all areas of development, including: social, emotional, large muscle, fine muscle (drawing, cutting, writing,) language, and basic school readiness (letter recognition, colors, shapes, number recognition, and counting.)
Each child develops at a different rate. We as teachers try to see each child as an individual. We use a developmental report card according to your child's growth and development.
Children in 4K will receive two progress reports, throughout the school year. One progress report will go home after the second quarter is complete, and another at the end of the year. These progress reports will include skills that a 4K child should be acquiring throughout the school year.
M=mastered skill W=working on skill
As part of our program, we take field trips as an entire group. We encourage parent participation and welcome all chaperones.
