Little Lambs: Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten

At St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School we provide a nurturing environment rich in experiences necessary to promote social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth within our preschool and pre-kindergarten students. With a faith-based focus and caring staff we create a warm and happy place for your child to learn. As we bridge the gap between home and school for our youngest students we create a beautiful blend between developmentally appropriate academics and play in order to foster the whole child.

Our curriculum is driven by teacher observation of each student’s interests and capabilities. Concepts and skills are introduced in a timely manner according to each child’s development. Concrete, hands on activities are planned around a calendar of themes relevant and therefore engaging to students. Classroom schedules are designed with a balance of structure and free choice, as well as active and quiet time.

Here at St. Francis we believe that:

  • Each student is a special child of God
  • Children learn best about God’s world through experimentation and exploration.
  • Providing developmentally appropriate activities and play are the best avenues of learning
  • Providing a loving environment fosters children's ability to develop to their fullest potential
  • The family and home is the primary place for each child’s learning
  • Building relationships with parents and promoting family participation in the class benefits children's success.
