Preschool for 4-Year-Olds, Renton, WA
How Do We Help 4-Year-Olds to Thrive in Preschool?
Four-year-olds love mastering new skills and expanding their world. For some four-year-olds, preschool is their first structured learning environment; others attended preschool when they were three. All children thrive when learning through direct experience with hands-on activities that involve their senses and trial-and-error. Problem-solving, decision-making, and free choices are essential components of early education. At King of Kings Preschool in Renton, Washington, we provide a joyful, loving environment where your child can build a spiritual frame of reference for living. Your child will learn while playing, developing friendships, and trying new things.
Our preschool programs are designed to prepare your 4-year-old for the next step in their education, Kindergarten for 5-year-olds.

Reading and Writing
Your child will begin learning letter and word recognition, writing, sounding out, and sign language. We introduce sight words during the second half of the year.
Young children love music! Our monthly music lessons are designed to be fun and engaging for four-year-olds. Your preschooler will have fun singing, using instruments, learning alphabet songs, listening to music, expressing music through movement, and participating in musical storytelling. Wrapped up in all this fun, your four-year-old will learn about tempo (slow, fast, and in between), rhythm, beat, and following directions. Your preschooler’s music lessons will reinforce their reading lessons and develop their motor skills.
Fun and creative hands-on exploration and experimentation designed to inspire and engage four-year-olds.
