Philosophy:  It is the Philosophy of the Early Childhood Center at St. Jude the Apostle School that Pre-Kindergarten should be a time that encourages the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth and development of the child.  Our program is Theme-Oriented which includes an Early childhood Curriculum that is based on the alphabet and enables children to discover the joy of learning.

Pre-K (3) Curriculum-  ( must be 3 years old by Dec.1st) Children in the Pre-K (3) program are just beginning to experience school and being away from home. The Pre-K teachers want their students to be independent and do things for themselves. Their goal is to teach them to respect their classmates; their space; and their feelings. They believe that the most important thing for them to learn is that “school can be a great place to be!”

Pre-K (4) Curriculum-  (must be 4 years old by Dec.1st) Pre-K is an exciting time in a young child’s life.  It is a time of new discovery, new friends, and new adjustments.  Most of all, it is a time of learning.   The Pre-K (4) program is aligned with the New York State Curriculum and Learning Standards, and is a wonderful time and important journey for your young child toward school readiness.
