a fantastic start to education
Finding the right early-childhood program
Our Junior Kindergarten, led by a teacher and full-time aide, fosters the development of the WHOLE child. Our preschool program develops each child spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually through age-appropriate, hands-on learning.
We lay a strong academic preschool foundation by creating an environment full of educational materials and tools that encourage children to explore and learn while growing in creativity and sense of self.
Students are starting to learn about their place in God’s big world and how to be a good friend. They experience lots of tactile play and learn letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. Junior Kindergarten students brighten every heart in the school with their enthusiasm and laughter.
JK students receive resource instruction each week in PE, Music, Library, and Art. Religion class is taught daily, and all students attend Mass each week with their older prayer buddy, who serves as a mentor.
Junior Kindergarten students receive report cards each quarter to give parents a guide as to what new skills they have learned and are assured of a spot in our kindergarten class when they move up.
