About The Program 


    This is a very important year for our 4 year olds as some may be attending Kindergarten the following school year. Our goal is to set them up for future success in Kindergarten. All children work at their own pace! Therefore, we partner with parents throughout the year with constant communication regarding the progress of their child. We believe this will help parents as they begin to make crucial decisions about the following school year. Did you know that by the age of 4, parents have 732 weeks until their child turns 18?! that is why we believe that what happens now matters ALOT! Four year olds are in the phase of stepping into who they are and becoming more aware of new things everyday. They ask the question "am i good?" and "am i okay?" We want to consistently answer these questions by embracing their physical, social, cognitive, and emotional needs through structure, routine, learning and FUN!
