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.

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.
