We offer a program for children who turn four on or before September 30th. This program meets five days a week, M-F from 8:00am-3:00pm, with an extended day option until 6:00pm.
Our four-year old students are provided with a variety of activities that develop kindergarten readiness. Activities include listening, language development, problem solving, group interaction, letter and sound recognition, counting and number recognition, as well as small and large motor activities, dramatic play, creative art, literature and music. These age appropriate activities are presented to children individually, in small and large groups in a Catholic environment. Skills developed in group activities include respect, sharing, listening, cooperation and problem solving. Teachers offer direct instruction and positive feedback to guide the children throughout the day.
