3 - 6 years
The Four Seasons primary program is for children ages 3 to 6 years. Our highly qualified teachers offer a play-based approach to learning inspired by Tools of the Mind and Reggio-Emilia. These two child-centered models of early childhood learning promote the foundational skills that result in emergent language and executive function skills. Activities and materials are multi-level which challenge and support each child at their own level and learning style.
The youngest children in this group are continuing to learn about themselves and the world around them through the manipulation of their senses. Opportunities to express themselves and focus through the use of sensory materials are critical as they prepare for more intentional learning.
As the children grow they develop a more mature level of play that is foundational to their social-emotional intelligence and self-regulation. Community based play and long term projects support their ability to focus, remember on purpose, plan one’s actions, reflect on one’s thinking, and cooperate and act with empathy toward peers.
