Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten - see Preschool section of this site
We provide a full-day program that emphasizes socialization, academic readiness, and creative play. Children receive daily lessons in Phonics, Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies and Religion in a self-contained classroom. Weekly lessons in Art, Music, Gym, Computers, Spanish and Library round out the curriculum.
Our Kindergarten begins using computer based learning, practice, and enrichment programs such as IXL and Study Island, continuing this practice throughout the upper grades.
During the summer or throughout the school year, these internet based programs complement the curriculum and allow for school or home-based practice and enrichment. This year, our students in preschool through grade 2 are involved in our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) program! Click here to view our delightful video of STEM in action.
