OLDER FOUR'S & YOUNG FIVES
Young Five's Pre-Kindergarten Classroom & Childcare Details
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.
