Welcome to Preschool

Preschool

 

Janet McWhirterSt. 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.
