4 Year Old Program
Yachad Kids Academy offers full and part-time Preschool programs for our four year olds. Ratios are kept low, one teacher per ten children. All meals are provided including breakfast, lunch, and two nutritious snacks. Our four year old program is very structured, adding developmentally appropriate workbooks to help expand basic skills and concepts. Our theme based daily curriculum will include stories, singing, creative art, letters, numbers, months, picture cards, writing, colors, and shapes. Monthly field trips as well as special musical and artistic performances are also included in our four year old curriculum.
Half-day hours include 7:00 am-6:30 pm
As parents drop off their child, a warm welcome awaits. Four year olds are free to explore and interact with the different areas of enrichment that each classroom offers including computer skills. Breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. and if the weather permits we will head outdoors to our playground for some social interactions and gross motor development.
Basic Preschool (9:00 a.m. -11:30 p.m.)
Our preschool program begins each day with circle time. Children are acclimated to a certain daily routine and are expected to participate in all activities. These activities will include daily projects, workbook pages, reciting the alphabet, months of the year, days of the week, and counting 1-50. Every morning ends again with circle time and a special theme related story from the teacher. Every morning, a healthy snack is offered and outdoor playtime is available.
Lunch-Nap (12:30 pm-3:00 pm)
As noon approaches, the children grow hungry and tired. Our meals are always prepared to be both balanced and nutritious. After lunch, our four year olds nap on their individual cots for 2 hours.
Child’s Choice- Parent Pick Up (4:00 pm -6:00 pm)
Every afternoon will begin with another healthy snack. Now that your child is older, we will reinforce our daily curriculum with an afternoon worksheet. Outdoor play time is also available until your child is picked up.
