The St. Cletus Preschool program focuses on the development of the whole child in a faith-based atmosphere. Throughout the day children participate in the following activities: prayer, play, music, math, art, calendar, technology, stories, and more. The Preschool curriculum provides children with the opportunities for social/emotional development, large and fine motor development. In all our grade levels, faith is taught across the curriculum and in Preschool we incorporate the “Allelu!” curriculum. St. Cletus Preschool is open to all children who will be turning 3 or 4 by September 1st.

 

St. Cletus Preschool offers both full day and half day options. Parents may choose for half day Preschool Monday – Friday, Tuesday/Thursday, or Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 8:00 am to 10:45 am. Full day Preschool is offered Monday – Friday. Full day Preschool students attend special classrooms which include: Spanish, Music, Library, TLC, and Gym.

 

Here’s some of the things Preschool students’ learn each day:

  • Social skills like sharing and self-control.
  • Fine motor skills to prepare us for holding writing tools.
  • Gross motor skills like coordination and balance.
  • Creative expression and taking pride in our work.
  • Literacy skills like book care and recognizing familiar letters and/or words.
  • Math skills like counting, sorting, and comparing.
  • Science skills like constructing, experimenting, and observing.

Have you been wondering why your child always seems to be playing instead of working in our classroom?

It’s because play IS the work of a child!

Research has shown that play is the most effective way to teach preschoolers.
