Here is my best explanation:

'a child of four' is the definition.

'child of four' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'child' could be 'quad' (I have seen 'Child of four ' mean 'quad' so perhaps 'child' could also mean 'quad') and 'quad' is found in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
