The 4-5s curriculum prepares children for kindergarten. The children engage in many opportunities to improve their academic and social skills. During free time, students improve verbal skills through telling stories and learning letters. The classroom discovery station provides hands-on time for measuring and experimentation through various science, math, and cooking projects. Activities to develop social skills include working together in small groups, assisting with clean-up and having a classroom "job" each week.

Our program also includes a number of not so typical days. We have 1-2 field trips per a month along with a number of special class days during which we celebrate holidays or do a special activity.
