4KPROGRAM

IMG_0633_edited.jpg

Our goals for each child are to develop a love of learning, a love of Jesus, foster independence and to continue to grow their social and personal skills.

Each day we create unique learning opportunities to develop a strong academic foundation tailored to: grow their fine and gross motor skills, reading and math readiness, language development, and social skills. We do this through: learning center and STEM activities, counting and adding, letter/sight word recognition and rhyming, group and individual activities, and free/group play. We recognize that each child is an individual and therefore develops and masters skills at a their own rate. We identify where your child is and set goals for them to develop skills in each of these areas.

In 4K, a typical day begins with welcoming our students into the classroom and getting ready for our day. As a school, we start each day with prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance, we then transition to our morning meeting where we kick off our day. During this meeting, we review the calendar, learn about Jesus, sing and dance, read a book, and focus on a lesson as a large group, based on a weekly theme. Next, we do a large group activities such as an art project, a religion lesson, or small group learning centers. We integrate free-choice play, where students are encouraged to play and explore their environment in various centers at their own pace, and recess time on the playground.

ENRICHMENT & SPECIAL PROGRAMS

  • Project Lead the Way—Our science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program is now integrated into our 4K-8th grade curriculum! 4K students will learn about Life Science by exploring characteristics of living and nonliving things, examining habitats, which will help them develop an understanding of what living things need in order to survive. They use the engineering design process to sketch, build, and test an animal’s shelter, then reflect on their design.

  • Library – Students visit the library weekly to enjoy story time and check out books.

  • Art and Music – 4K classes take regular opportunities to develop individual expression through art, crafts, song, and dance, as children learn to appreciate the beauty of God’s world around us.

  • Spanish Language – Spanish instruction introduces our young students to foreign language and the larger world.

  • Physical Activity – Children attend Physical Education class, as well as have daily opportunities to participate in structured and unstructured activities in indoor and outdoor settings

  • Field Trips & In-House Guests – There are multiple opportunities throughout the year to expand on learning themes beyond the classroom. In-house guests/outside field trips have included: NB Fire and Police Departments, nature centers, nursing homes, First Stage, and more.

  • Buddy Program – 4K students love their 5th grade buddies! 4K students are mentored by 5th grade students for Mass, reading, and other learning activities
