The Four's Program


The Four's Program

Our Four's Program offers an abundance of hands-on literacy, mathematic science, and art activities to help prepare children for kindergarten.  We foster independence in our children in a relaxed, play-based environment, where fun is still part of learning. Children are exposed to letter recognition, writing and beginning sounds of letters, which fosters reading-readiness. Class size is limited to ten children so teachers are able to work individually with students.

    Monday/Wednesday/Friday full day - 9:15am - 3:00pm, including lunch     

    Monday/Wednesday/Friday mornings - 9:15am - 12:30pm, including lunch
