Pre-K 4

4 Year Olds

4 Years old is a critical time in your child's education

As they approach four years old, your child becomes more creative, curious and increasingly independent.

Their “make-believe,” play is more complex and imaginative, and they love to show off what they can do.

As their language skills grow, so does their ability to solve problems and regulate their emotions.

But they still need lots of support from caring adults to help them develop the habits they need to thrive in school and beyond.

Our curriculum and staff aid your child in these critical formative years, preparing them for kindergarten and beyond.

We make learning fun!  We get your child up and moving with impromptu dance session to music that fits our monthly theme.

My son loved his time at this school! The teachers, director and assistant director were all very nice and caring. Especially Miss Nikki!! We are so sad to go and are only leaving because of moving to another area.
