The Connect 4 Learning (C4L) is an interdisciplinary and research-based Pre-K curriculum that was developed to support students' social and emotional development and cognitive growth. It encourages positive peer-to-peer interactions and an understanding of the concepts of family and community. It addresses physical development through learning how to take care of one's self. Importantly, C4L helps students develop language and literacy skills through various modes of communication (verbal, written, body language) and it supports mathematical development in the areas of numbers, shapes, measurements, and patterns and how to use them. C4L provides multiple opportunities for creative skills development through music, dance and arts. Most unique to this curriculum is the coverage of scientific skills development. Students will actively discover the world around them, including living things, the earth, space and energy.
