The Ypsilanti Cooperative Preschool 4 year old class offers a balanced mix of child initiated activities (free play) and teacher directed activities (circle time & small group/table activities). We use a Montessori-based curriculum. For example we use sand paper letters to learn letter sounds and recognition.
The curriculum is typically based on a weekly theme and will include activities to go along with that theme in the following areas:
- Social Studies
- Social Skills
- Fine Motor Skills
- Large Motor Skills
- Music & Movement
- Practical Life
The four year old preschool class has a total of no more than 20 children. They meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00am to 12:00pm for a 15 week term.
