PreK Curriculum Philosophy:
It is the curriculum philosophy of the St. Mary Catholic School PreK that children be encouraged to learn and grow to realize the unique, individual gifts they were given by God. The Pre K program will provide a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences where children can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment. Our preschool program provides settings that recognize varied abilities and interests. We seek to develop the whole child; socially, emotionally, and academically. Children are given opportunities to for meaningful play that encourages development of language skills, curiosity and problem solving. We recognize that parents as the primary educators of their children and seek to partner with them in their child’s educational process.
