4s Program

The 4’s program continues transitioning children comfortably and safely from a home environment to a school environment, while also emphasizing those skills which will enable children to make the next transition into Kindergarten.  Similar to the 3’s program, the primary goal of the 4’s program continues to be developing lifelong learners and a love of learning.  All of the goals and criteria of the 3’s program remains for the 4’s class, with the addition of more complex literacy and listening activities, often requiring a greater attention span, multiple step directions, and refined fine motor skills.  Children are encouraged to be more independent with problem solving and self-help skills.  “Letter Days” are introduced in the 4’s class, which focuses on exploring letter sounds, letter writing, and other letter activities.  As children leave the four year old program, they are ready to engage emotionally, socially, and academically in the next level of learning.
