Your 4 and 5 Year Old Continues to Grow and Learn at Mes Amis

4+ Year Old Room Outcomes

Making sure to improve on everything your child learned from last year, Mes Amis introduces 4 and 5 year olds to new skills. Combining ages 4 and 5 in the same room, Mes Amis ensures each child receives experiences focused on the Emergent Curriculum and hands-on activities.

Your 4 Year Old

We have your 4 year old begin an attempt at writing words for colours, shapes, numbers, and the alphabet in both English and French. By the end of this preschool year, your child is able to:
