3 & 4 YEAR OLD PROGRAM

3 DAY PM
Mon/Tues/Thurs
12:45pm–3:15pm
Ages 3 & 4

This class is a unique program at Jean Lyle because it is a mixed–age class for 3 and 4 year olds –and the only class that children can attend two years in a row. We provide a positive atmosphere for three and four year old children to encourage and develop respectful and caring peer interactions through work and play. Our curriculum emphasizes a balance of individual learning readiness that offers consistent practice with school tools in small group settings and the opportunity to explore choices in the Jean Lyle environment. Teacher/Student ratio 1:6

This class works especially well for children and families who do not want their children to be in school for 5 days per week before kindergarten, for children who are not early risers, and for families who like to have their mornings at home or free for other activities.

Parents that have sent their children to this program have commented:

•  By starting school in the afternoon it allows children a relaxed and calm approach to the school day.
•  Works well for parents who do not want their children in a five–day a week program.
•  Allows time to participate in other activities such as swimming, dance or other activities.
•  Tends to be a smaller class and some children appreciate a more quiet environment that helps them adjust to a school routine.
