4 years - 5 years
Cornerstone Fours classroom is designed to prepare your child for Pre-Kindergarden. In this room we continue using the Frog Street Press curriculum. This curriculum allows your child to learn letters and letter sounds through silly songs, stories and characters. It is designed so that your child can develop early reading skills by imitating reading patterns and beginning to retell simple stories. In this classroom your child will also learn to write his/her name. Fine motor skills are taught through the opportunity to trace letters, color and use scissors. Social skills will be learned through imaginative play, sensory exploration and organized games/activities. In this preschool classroom we also incorporate a daily circle time and thematic units.Enrollment Schedule a Tour
Preschool is very important for several reasons. Children at this age are very social, and being in a preschool setting helps foster their confidence when meeting new friends and teachers. It allows them time away from parents to learn and grow independently. Our schedule and curriculum, Frog Street Press, is specially designed to give your child quality educational, interactive, and fun experiences!
