St. Elizabeth Preschool focuses on Kindergarten readiness skills, literacy, math, faith formation, science, social and emotional development and basic essentials like healthy habits, safety habits, etc. in a caring and nurturing environment. The Preschoolers learn through large and fine motor activities as well as purposeful play. Our 4 Year Preschool uses the Letter People Curriculum for Reading/ Literacy Readiness skills and Stories of God’s Love for the Religion Curriculum. All of our 4 year Preschool students began attending weekly art classes this year with Mrs. Rodaitis. The children had a wonderful experience with Mrs. Rodaitis in her classroom!
Did you know that we offer a variety of options for our 4 year preschool program?
Our 4 year preschool children have the choice of attending 3 days a week or 5 days a week, as well as the choice of half day or full day preschool. We have completed our pilot year for 5 full day Preschool! It has been a successful year! Six children took part in our 5 full day program. The children became a close knit group, helping each other whenever needed. In their extra time at school, the children enjoyed enrichment activities focusing on letter & sound recognition, number recognition and counting practice, science experiments, and art activities. Our 4 year program is growing quickly! At this point for the 2017-18 school year, we have now filled our 4 year class and have started a waiting list for registrations!!
The 3 year old preschool program runs on Tuesday and Thursday from 9-11 am. The 3 year preschoolers begin learning about the basics: letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and of course, the Love of God & Jesus. Each month, we focus on a few letters & numbers, a shape and color, with activities revolving around these concepts as well as seasonal activities. Our 3 year old and 4 year old students share time together in the classroom for snack and playtime.
