The major focus of the 4-year-old program is socialization. The goal is to facilitate socialization of children with their peers and to facilitate appropriate behavior in a classroom environment. The major objectives of our program are to: 1. instill within the heart of each child basic scriptural truths by relating Biblical concepts to desired behavior and attitudes. 2. provide an away-from-home experience that builds independence, social development, creativity, a positive self-image, a sense of achievement and security, a joy of learning, a thirst for knowledge, self-expression, and self-control, and 3. to extend a child’s home to include the school environment.
