4 Year Old Program

Drop off: 8:45-9am

Knowing and understanding comes from active involvement with people and materials. Four year olds are naturally active and enjoy learning through their environment. St. Peter's CCC Preschool will engage the children in the 4 year old program by introducing letters through song, story, direct instruction, and games. Mastery is not the goal, but rather we will meet the needs of each student as they begin working on pre-reading skills. Time will continue being spent on development of fine and gross motor skills, music, and nursery rhymes.  Math skills such as rote counting, number recognition, patterning, measuring, and graphing will be introduced through hands on activities using various manipulatives.  As we prepare these children for kindergarten, projects and games will be done in centers. Children will learn the skills needed to work in a 'center' environment.  Free play will also be part of the daily routine to continue the development of social skills. Spiritually we will teach of God's world through Bible stories and monthly Kindness Curriculum stories and projects.
