Social, energetic and imaginative best describe the four year old. Often impatient and silly, they discover humor and spend a great deal of time being outlandish and telling jokes. Language is expansive and playful. Imagination suddenly becomes greater than life for the four year old who often confuses reality with “make believe”. Wild stories and exaggerations are common. Four year olds feel good about the things they can do, show self confidence, and are willing to try new adventures.
We believe nurturing children’s imaginations, language, stories, interests, and social relationships are essential to planning our evolving classroom curriculum. We ensure large, uninterrupted blocks of time for open ended indoor and outdoor play. The environment is designed to invite discovery, independence and social interaction.
