Students enrolled in K4 have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities designed to help them make the adjustment to the school environment and working in a group. It is important that children learn to function well in the classroom environment. This includes getting along with other children and cooperating with adults other than their own parents. These students learn to take turns and wait without interrupting, along with thinking, reasoning, and decision making skills.
They also work diligently to develop their listening skills, social/emotional skills, literacy, language, mathematical reasoning, and knowledge acquisition through a thematic approach. Research shows that children must first have a strong base in language: rhyming, patterning, playing with words, listening to stories, etc. From the first day till the last, K4 students are saturated with these concepts in a fun yet challenging way.
We're More than Academics
We believe that strong hearts and minds impact the world in amazing ways. For this reason, we teach moral focus in every lesson. They are so meaningful to us that we celebrate them every month as a community with songs, skits and performances. We practice each virtue through:
Social contracts where we pledge to support and encourage each other.
Our CHAMPS classroom management system where children learn social responsibility.
Community outreach programs.
The moral focus curriculum is awesome! My kids are learning things that we are trying to teach them at home. It’s being reinforced here at school in fun and creative ways.
Working through challenges to find success
Treating others as you want to be treated
Helping each other through good and bad
Being honest, fair and trustworthy
Making the right and just choices
Standing up for what is good and right
Managing your impulses to achieve bigger goals
Supporting each other to be our best
Appreciating what you have and passing it forward
