Classroom 4

3-4 Year Olds
  • Class Overview

  • Classroom 4

    Room 4 is a 6:1:2 integrated preschool classroom for 3 and 4 year olds. We have both nursery school students and program students in our classroom. There are 3 staff in Room 4: a teacher and two teacher’s assistants.

    All year long we work on fun and exciting ways to increase our reading/writing, math, academic, attending, social, play, and independent life skills. Each student is able to have his or her school experience involve programming that is specific to his or her needs to make the experience in Room 4 the most meaningful to him or her through one to one sessions or small group sessions that have goals that target child specific needs.

    Room 4 uses the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum to help increase literacy, pre-writing, and other fine motor skills and the Touch Math curriculum to help increase different math skills.

    • Noah is nearly independent in dressing and toileting and so much more. Hope is priceless and what others took away from us in an already devastating situation, Crossroads Center for Children teachers and administrators gave back two-fold.
