Four's Classroom - Preschool Program

Preschool clasroom at the learning express preschoolThe Learning Express Preschool Program is designed to address kindergarten readiness skills in a unique hands-on, activity-based approach, in combination with the finest early-childhood standards from across the nation. We address all curriculum areas incorporating a variety of learning styles to engage and encourage our students. The teachers in our Preschool program team-teach, alternating lead teacher monthly and work closely with the Plymouth Canton school district.

Our Preschool learning adventure begins with our weekly, thematic literature based content, supported by planned learning activities that develop critical thinking and creativity. The "Four's Classroom" has multiple learning stations outfitted with engaging and developmentally appropriate materials. The students will breakout into small groups, to meet one-on-one with an assigned teacher and to work on small group learning activities that help to provide a better sense of community within the context of the large social group. Your preschooler's assigned teacher will also compile a work sample portfolio for conferences.

We understand that preschoolers learn best through the playful interaction based on their interests and prior knowledge. That is why we promote children's natural inquisitiveness in an environment that allows them to explore the world around them and to prepare them for kindergarten. If your child loves active and creative learning this is the program for them!
