Tremendous Threes and Fabulous Fours
We use the Illinois Early Learning Standards as our guide to prepare the students for kindergarten and follow kindergarten readiness guidelines used by District 70 Schools in Libertyville. We begin introducing these skills in the Tremendous Threes program and concentrate more heavily on them in the Fabulous Fours. We use the Handwriting Without Tears program throughout the curriculum.
Each class attends a monthly Chapel session to reinforce the virtue of the month ( ie. kindness, sharing, patience). We offer in house enrichment with visits from Music-in-the-Box, Core Martial Arts, and Yoga classes The bookmobile from Cook Library visits too. Each program goes on three field trips each year.
The class sizes are limited to 15 students with 2 teachers. Parent helping is not required, but there are numerous opportunities to join us in the classroom. We have monthly helper sign-up sheets or you are welcome to assist at any time that is convenient for you.
Our curriculum revolves around monthly themes. The following events are also included in our curriculum each month: Cooking Day, Library Day/Author of the Month, Color Day, Games Day, and introductory Spanish & sign language. Each circle time incorporates an academic lesson related to the theme. Some of the learning goal highlights are: socialization, shapes, colors, counting and number recognition, graphing, patterning, sorting, letter recognition, cutting, and fine/large motor skills
