Your little one is getting smarter by the day! The Park District is keenly aware this year is full of crucial cognitive milestones that are preparing them for kindergarten. They are starting to get the hang of numbers, patterns, time and even starting to read. They are expanding critical thinking skills, such as identifying, classifying, comparing, contrasting, sequencing, predicting and problem solving. Advances in hand-eye coordination help four-year-olds do puzzles and play with toys that have small parts. This program includes readiness in reading (Jolly Phonics Program), literature, writing, science, technology, social science, art and music. It’s a critical development year and we ensure they make observable progress in all areas. Must be potty trained. NO PULL UPS. Classes start the Wednesday FOLLOWING Labor Day.
