Early Childhood

Fours

Ages4 years old by 10/15/22

Children in our Fours Program develop the necessary skills for kindergarten readiness and beyond! Our curriculum encourages them to develop higher-level thinking skills, including reasoning, problem solving, identifying complex patterns, and classifying by attributes. Social and emotional skills continue to be developed by more sophisticated negotiation and dialogue.

Our fours program also emphasizes pre-reading and writing skills. Using an approach inspired by Handwriting Without Tears, children engage in activities that help strengthen the muscles in their hands, preparing them to grip a pencil and for emerging letter formation.

Enrichment
Children enjoy special enrichment activities throughout the week, led by experts from other JCC departments. Sample activities include:

  • Athletics
  • Creative Movement
  • Music
  • Red Cross Certified Swimming
  • Skills and Thrills Occupational Therapy Activities

Jewish values, Shabbat, and Jewish holidays are celebrated in a way that makes all feel welcome and included. 

Extracurricular Classes
Families have the option of enrolling in a variety of extracurricular enrichment classes outside of their tuition, from swimming to sports to dance, and we will escort them to and from these classes!
