Written and verbal skills are developed on an individual basis
All language arts encompass a whole language approach
Our preschool utilizes an open-ended curriculum that is child-centered and lends to the natural development and sequence of learning - one that takes its direction from the child's needs rather than a prescribed timetable. It addresses how a young child learns as well as what he or she should learn.
Developmentally appropriate practices, as outlined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), form the foundation of our curriculum design that is geared to the unique make-up of the children in class each year. St Peter and St. Paul Preschool has been NAEYC accredited since 1991. This voluntary national program sets and monitors standards for high quality programs for young children.
Faith formation of young children is a work in progress. Ideas about God and His word are integrated into daily classroom lessons and activities. Church liturgies are acknowledged in an age-appropriate manner
Field Trips also encourage out-of-the classroom learning.
Play is essential to learning. Our preschool students learn through play to test, discover, explore, adapt, classify, organize, and recognize their experiences through their play
Multi-sensory experiences ar the best way for young children to learn
Math curriculum uses a manipulative approach
