St. Paul Catholic School Early Childhood Education Program fosters concepts of faith, value, justice, equality and love of learning. Our aim is to give children a positive first school experience in a nurturing environment. The program is designed to enhance the child’s social development and self-concept and to prepare them with age-appropriate learning skills.
We subscribe to the philosophy that from birth, children develop at different rates and learn in different styles and modalities. Following the Core Knowledge curriculum, our program includes a variety of age-appropriate activities and experiences in the areas of reading, writing, math, science, social skills, work habits, music, art and technology. Through these activities and experiences, we strive to prepare our students for a successful kindergarten experience.
Through our religion curriculum, we help children realize God’s love for them personally, appreciate the many gifts He has given them, and develop their responsibility of stewardship toward all of His creation. The program is licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services as a half day preschool and as such, abides by all regulations prescribed by that agency. Morning sessions are from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and afternoon sessions are from 12:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Three to four years olds attend Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Four to five year olds attend either on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings plus Thursday afternoons or Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons.
