4 Year Old Program
At AELC we strongly believe every child's year of kindergarten is special, and should be treated as such. It is full of wonder and curiosity. We strive to build on this curiosity, and to promote a love of learning in meaningful experiences. We believe play is the most significant way for children to learn and we provide a stimulating program that is responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths and abilities. We aim to foster children's development of positive relationships with their peers and to build on their emerging independence. Our goal is to prepare children in all aspects of development so they are ready for school, and for life.
The 4 year old program includes weekly dance classes (taught by an external teacher) and several incursions throughout the course of the year. Some of our most popular incursions include a mobile Petting Farm, Living Eggs, Captain Trash, Drama Toolbox, African Drumming, Museum Dinosaurs and Fossils etc.
