Friendly Fish

4-year-olds

The Friendly Fish group provides preschoolers with opportunities to develop a love of learning!  Children are given more freedom to explore based on their interests as they are engaged in the classroom learning centers.  Learning centers give your preschool child the opportunity to learn to share and play with others, build independence and confidence, and acquire the skills needed for kindergarten. Learning emerges through frequent exposure to concepts, interactions, purposeful play, and new experiences. Utilizing the Teaching Strategies curriculum, our teachers complete daily observations and authentic assessment to guide lesson plans and activities while ensuring that each child is meeting developmentally appropriate skills.
