  • About Full Day Fours Curriculum

    The FD4's includes a balance of both STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering , Art and Math) and Early Childhood Workshop Model.  

    The Early Childhood Workshop Model (ECW) is a standards-based framework for learning. This model will prepare children for the Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop Model they will experience in elementary school. 

    The STEM based learning practice includes hands-on, individualized learning.  STEM is embedded into daily life, and advanced through teachers who create intentional learning environments and experiences.
