Science: At 4 years old, children are naturally inquisitive. With the science portion of the Funshine curriculum, children make observations, chart weather daily and identify differences in the seasons. They plant seeds and record the growth, learn the importance of keeping the earth clean and how to recycle at school and home.
Social and Emotional Development: Children begin to understand the meaning of friendship by the time they’re 4 years old. They hug each other or sit with their arms around one another as they read a book. They begin identifying their feelings. At Kiddie Corner Academy we encourage children to discuss their emotions, to tell friends why they are special and to share enthusiasm for new people and new things.
Fine Motor Skills: At 4 years old, children have good control of their fine motor skills. They use crayons to turn scribbles into letters and words. They can zip, button and snap their own clothes. During Family Style Dining, 4 year olds will serve themselves, passing food to others and use forks and spoons to eat.
