EARLY CHILDHOOD

 

Preschool

Our goal is to meet the individual needs of our students, while instilling in them a love of school and a desire to learn!

 

Class begins promptly at 8:10 a.m. each day and ends at 2:30 p.m. (10:50 a.m. for half day students).  Drop off and pick up for Preschool is at the Main Entrance at 1125 Harrison Avenue.  Preschool 3 capacity: 25,  Preschool 4 capacity: 32 

Preschool 3

The three-year-old program at St. Louise involves learning through discovery and play.  We emphasize language development, aesthetic activities and physical development.  During each day, a variety of interesting and stimulating activities are introduced to the children. Developing appropriate activates include dramatic play, free play and opportunities to listen to stories and to share personal experiences.

     Throughout the year, a variety of thematic units are used to meet the objectives for all curricular areas including Religion, Language, Math, Music, Art and Physical Education.

Preschool 4

The four-year-old preschool program focuses on two major areas of the development of play and the expansion of social skills.  We support play and guide its direction, giving it educational value.  The four-year-old program is structured around the introduction to the alphabet, while visiting a variety of thematic units throughout the year. Curriculum focuses on Religion, Math, Language, Reading Readiness, Art, Music and Physical Education.

 

Kindergarten

NEW!   We've included Kindergarten students in our upgraded technology program!  Now every St. Louise student K-8 utilizes their personal Google Chromebooks daily.

 

Kindergarten is the stepping stone that takes children from the rich and social environment of preschool to the academics of first grade.  The Kindergarten program is designed to meet children’s needs and to stimulate learning in all developmental areas including physical, social, emotional, and intellectual.  Daily activities are chosen to help develop children’s self-esteem and to nurture positive feelings toward learning.

 

Kindergarten begins at 7:50 a.m. each day and ends at 2:45 p.m.  Drop off and pick up for Kindergarten students is at Door #12 at the rear of the building.
