St. Paul's Preschool

Tuesday - Thursday 3 year olds
We are a half-day preschool. Our morning session begins at 9:00 a.m. and is over at 11:30 a.m. We also offer an afternoon session which begins at 12:15 noon and concludes at 2:45 p.m. (Please see ‘extended day’ description in this Program section to find ways to lengthen your child’s school hours with us).Children need to be potty trained by the time they attend school in September. Three year olds (must be 3 by December 31st) are eligible to attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
There are ten children assigned in each classroom and they work together with their adjoining classroom in what we called ‘PODS’. There are 3 qualified teachers working together in this combined group of 20. In this way children have the ability to collaborate and work in both large and small group settings that helps prepare them for independent success.
As the year progresses our three year olds work with their teacher who help children make ‘appointments’ to determine where they will work during the day. They also are able to share common interests and construct their own curriculum by working in small committees.
Each classroom has interest / learning centers which include blocks, dramatic play, art studio, easel painting, light table, writing table, communication center, clay, wire experiences, library area, Lego table, classroom pets, musical instruments, and a variety of tactile experiences to enhance all learning styles. Children also participate in various science and cooking experiences.
Children are provided with a healthy snack each day. These snacks are posted weekly on this web site.
Extracurricular activities include; chapel; music and movement; woodworking and garden lessons.
Please read our school philosophy and 'The 100 Languages' for more detailed information.
2022-2023 annual Tuition fees for our Tuesday / Thursday program are $3,000.00 or $300.00 monthly.
