Tell me about your curriculum.

St. John’s Preschool teaches a Playing to Learn curriculum that features activities to facilitate learning and growing. Skills are age-appropriate and are introduced, taught on a daily basis and reinforced throughout the school year. Our teachers guide learning through planned, fun engaging activities that nurture each child’s development in all the ways that are important to them. Our teachers recognize that each child learns at their own rate.
