The children entering the four year old class at The Campbell School have a strong foundation of skills started in the three year old room.  We build on these skills while trying to instill a love for learning.  In the classroom as in life, no child is alike.  We focus on helping the children realize their own unique potential.  The morning starts with social interaction with friends building with blocks or legos, playing in the dress up area, working at the play dough table or creating a special art project.  Classroom time includes working on handwriting projects, recognizing colors, letters, shapes, and numbers, art projects, science experiments, and enjoying books.  From a social aspect, we focus on teamwork, good manners, listening and focus skills, sharing, cooperation, and respect of others.  An emphasis is given to fine motor skills as well as coordination, balance, and other gross motor activities.  Children leaving the four year old room leave more confident, polite and ready to face the next phase of their education.

Testimonial

As a nervous four year old, I was afraid and hesitant to encounter new experiences. Pre-school was no different. As I clung to my mother’s leg refusing to let her leave me, a kind and patient teacher eased me into the classroom and away from my mother. Through elementary school, middle school, and high school, my mother constantly reminded me of the woman and pre-school that kept me in school. She told me over and over again that I would not have made it to school without her. On my last day of pre-school at The Campbell School, my mom made a promise. She promised that on the day of my high school graduation, I would bring Mrs. Zizza roses to thank her for her patience and effort and for overall keeping me in school. At eighteen years old, a high school graduate, eager to start college in the fall, I walked through the doors of the Campbell School and I gave Mrs. Zizza the roses she deserved. Although I do not have a perfect memory of my pre-school career, I know I would not have completed it had it not been for Mrs. Zizza, Mrs. Campbell, and the Campbell School.
