Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten
STSJP early childhood programs give children the skills and tools they need to be successful as students. There is an emphasis on literacy and numbers skills, allowing children to learn in context while surrounded by acceptance, love, understanding and a feeling of security and structure.
At STSJP, Preschool is for children who are 3 years old by August 1. Preschool is Monday - Friday. Parents can choose half day (8 a.m. to 11 a.m.) or full day (8 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
Pre-kindergarten is for children who are 4 by August 1, and who will enter kindergarten the following year. Pre-K is five days a week, and both full-day and half-day options are available.
STSJP offers full-day kindergarten. All students receive instruction in the core areas of reading, writing, mathematics and religion, along with science, social studies and the arts. Full-day students benefit from opportunities for enrichment or remediation, and have time for additional exploration through learning centers.
