The Four/Five-year old program has a greater variety of experiences and more small motor activities such as scissors, art, manipulative. They begin to concentrate and remember as well as recognize objects by shape, color, or size. Through the Four/Five-year old program the children are developing basic math and problem solving skills. We also stress working cooperatively and following directions. We have a print-rich environment that encourages their language development. Some will begin to explore their writing skills. Of course our Christian curriculum is incorporated into the weekly lesson plans.

Programs for the 3’s, 4’s and 5’s go beyond the child’s immediate experiences of self, home, and family to include special events and field trips.
