Four Year Olds - On the Road To Success
This program continues to build on the previous program. Just as in the "Let's Grow Together" three year old program, the classroom in this program will be set up in centers to allow the children to explore their environment and learn from a variety of perspectives. The children will be exposed to teacher directed, child directed, small group, large group, and individual group work.
The curriculum is also a unit based thematic program. The curriculum again incorporates learning centers in the lessons. They are:
Block and Transportation
The children will study a new unit each month. Some areas of study will be similar to those in the three year old program; however, there will be different learning goals and activities. This program has a different approach to focus letters. For example, in the previous program the children go through the alphabet starting with A and ending with Z. In this program they begin to learn the letters for themselves. For instance, they may study S and W during the first month.
Another difference in this program is that the social skills are replaced with a science skill. They may study collecting and observing during September and classifying, measuring, and estimating during October.
We believe this program is a wonderful preparation for Kindergarten.
