4s Program

Four Year Old Program
Our four year olds in the Four Year Old Program attend 3 days per week. The 4s program continues the gentle
transition from a home environment to a school environment, while also emphasizing those skills needed for
future learning. Academics are introduced naturally and subtly in a meaningful manner — many of our 4 year
olds are ready for 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 4s class, which focus on exploring letter sounds,
letter recognition, writing, and other literacy activities. As children leave the four year old program, they are
ready to engage emotionally, socially, and academically in the next level of learning.
