We offer a flexible pre-kindergarten program that is geared towards Kindergarten readiness and staffed by a certified and caring early childhood educator. The program currently used is "Investigator's Club" which encourages lots of curiosity, discussion and exploration. Our Faith based curriculum focuses on helping our youngest students explore new interests, share wonderful experiences and grow together in knowledge and faith. Our program is built around weekly themes and activities and interactive centers. We play outside on our playground every day, weather permitting.
Located next to our Kindergarten classroom, our students have plenty of chances to interact with both Kindergarten and the upper grades. We get together weekly with our 4th grade prayer partners for reading, craft activities and celebrations. In addition, our children attend gym, art, music and library weekly with our Holy Cross teachers. They also attend our weekly prayer services and monthly masses.
Since we focus on Kindergarten readiness, children should be 4 by October 15 to enter the program. You may choose either a 3 day or a 5 day program, and either mornings (8:30-12:00) or full day (8:30-3:00.) While we are willing to accommodation your needs with the half-day option, we strongly prefer and recommend a full-day program in order to fully achieve readiness for Kindergarten and to take advantage of all of the programs and enrichment opportunities we offer. If your child is staying for a full day, they may bring their lunch from home or purchase hot lunch.
