The Hummingbirds Classroom

The Four Year Old Program, or “The Hummingbirds” are so named because of the tall green framed door leading into the classroom that may remind you of a hummingbird’s chest, also this room tends to be ‘humming’ with activity! Funding for this room is provided, in-part, by the North Carolina Pre-K. There are 18 Four-year-old children enrolled in the Green Room under the daily care of a full-time teacher and a full-time assistant. 

The four year old curriculum, Opening the World of Learning (O.W.L.), incorporates all domains of learning, including social-emotional, cognitive, language, communication and physical development. This comprehensive curriculum integrates language and literacy skills through rich content in social studies and science, favorite children’s books, non-fiction books, songs, and poems.
