Helping to start the 4K program at Merton Primary was the most rewarding and exciting event in my teaching career. Our goal was to develop a program that was play based and met all the State Early Learning Standards. The 4K program respects the individual child and differentiates the curriculum to their individual learning styles. We continue to access how, and what we are teaching to provide the best educational program for our children.
