The four-year-old program focuses on mastery of self-help skills as well as the more academic pre reading, math, science and social studies skills.  This program also includes physical, art and music education.  Children also participate in several field trips throughout the year.  A typical day includes free play, two circle times, group time, snack time and outside play.  Circle times include skill work, such as patterning, graphing, and number recognition, sound awareness, rhyming, letter recognition, and scientific explorations as well as songs, finger play and stories.  Children enrolled in this program also have the option to enroll in two additional afternoons (Tuesday and Thursday).  This allows the teaching staff and children to explore math, language arts, science and social studies in more depth.
