Four year olds at South Lyon Co-op Preschool grow and learn both socially and academically through active learning with a developmentally appropriate, research-based approach. Adults are there to facilitate, encourage, and create the environment in which academics are embedded, as children experience many hands-on activities and literacy opportunities throughout the day, choosing, designing, and creating projects that they are interested in, all the while problem solving and building community. If this is your child’s first experience in a school setting he/she will find a nurturing and reassuring environment in which to experience independence and growing self-regulation.

The Fours’ Enrichment program is available for children who are enrolled in either of our 4 year old classes and who could benefit from an extra day of education as a step-up towards the 5 days a week they will eventually be attending in kindergarten. Students will participate in a half-day worth of activities which will allow them to delve into more science, social studies, movement and mindfulness, all the while growing and achieving goals socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Discovery of concepts will happen through a variety of circumstances and groupings. There will be whole group, small group and one-on-one opportunities, as well as center-based instruction. The Fours’ Enrichment classroom will be a place where students can be curious thinkers who grow into confident learners in a nurturing and caring environment.
