Welcome to By-the-Shore 4's Class

Rachel Anderson (Teacher) and          Jenn DePalmo (Assistant)

Our By-the-Shore 4's VPK class is from 8:45 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for 5 days per week. This class has 20 students with 2 teachers.  


Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. DePalmo  offer a loving, nurturing environment while teaching lessons that support the VPK standards and the NAEYC guidelines. Lessons focus on social and academic skills that include fine motor, gross motor, social-emotional, math skills, phonological awareness, literacy, and science.  Children also enjoy enrichment classes in Music, Spanish, and Chapel.


Assessments are mandated for three times per year to understand and reflect each students stengths and progress.  Lesson plans are created with the students' needs in mind.


Students remain with their same class and teachers for the entire August-May in order to build relationships and bond with their peers. A full-year curriculum is taught based on Kindergarten preparation with the goal of all students moving on to the the next level in the Fall.
