Four Year Old Program


We offer one session for our four year old students.


Four Year Old Session: Monday, Wednesday & Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.


Students must turn four on or before December 1, 2020, to be eligible for our four year old program for the 2020-21 school year.

Classroom Activities

Our program for four year old students explores pre-reading and pre-math skills while advancing small and gross motor skills. An introduction to science is explored in our science center. Our kindergarten readiness activities include:

  • Alphabet recognition (early reading)
  • Number recognition (early math skills)
  • Sequence and pattern recognition
  • Introduction to printing
  • Art projects
  • Library day
  • Gym day
  • Show-n-tell
  • Field trips

The four year old students also have annual events family and friends can attend. The Thanksgiving Play teaches us about the Pilgrims and Native Americans. They will learn about artists such as Monet, Van Gogh and Picasso while preparing for the Art Show. The Mother's Day Special celebrates Mother's Day, while the Dad's PJ Party is a great opportunity for dads to share a special evening with their little one.

Lake Shore Cooperative Nursery School holds in-house registration for current and past members in the end of January each school year. Registration for the public is offered through an Open House held on the first or second Saturday of February. To register, you will fill out a registration application for each student and include a one-time registration fee. This fee is for new students registering for an available spot (there is no fee for our waiting lists) and is non-refundable.


After the conclusion of our winter registration process, we will continue to accept new students until our classes are filled.
