Jenison Christian’s Four-year-old preschool program prepares children for kindergarten as they explore God’s amazing world. Our teachers build on the skills learned in 3’s preschool and encourage independence as the children prepare for the coming years. Through play-based activities, our 4-year-old preschoolers will continue to work on learning and forming letters, numbers, and engage in other readiness skills.

Admission Requirements:
To enroll in our four-year-old program, your child must be 4 years of age and potty trained by September 1st.
