Our 4/5 Year Old program focuses on school readiness with a structured daily schedule that teaches social skills, listening skills and respect for our friends. Our team helps to strengthen each child’s decision making and self-help skills in a safe supportive environment. You will see caregivers sitting with your child in teacher-led activities such as puzzles, learning games, and hands-on activities. Large group time is a priority that helps your child learn to be a part of a group and also gives them an opportunity to express themselves. We will do our best to individualize our program to meet the needs of your child’s development.
Activities include music and movement, outdoor play, practical life and sensory activities, arts and crafts, story and sharing times, dramatic play, and lots of laughter. We strive to meet your child’s physical, intellectual, social, and emotional needs. We feel children learn best in a loving, organized, natural learning environment. Your child will learn something new every day by being a part of our extended family. Your child will learn important values such as patience, sharing, responsibility, compassion for self and others, communication, and teamwork. Your child will also learn how to paint, play with dough, cut with scissors, color with crayons, and the beginning stages of reading. Your child will always be encouraged to use his/her imagination while creating artwork, manipulating his/her own ideas and thoughts on paper, or other concrete materials.
