St. Catherine’s Preschool has designed an excellent, well-rounded curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for children. In order to develop each child at their appropriate age level, St. Catherine’s Preschool program integrates five specific areas: Spiritual, Emotional, Cognitive, Physical, Social
SPIRITUALLY: Our curriculum will help your child grow in the knowledge and love of God, develop happy, wholesome feelings towards his/her Catholic Church, and become familiar with related Bible thoughts and stories.
SOCIALLY: Our curriculum will help your child grow in his/her ability to work and play with others, respect the personal and property rights of others, become more friendly, likeable, thoughtful and helpful, and develop an attitude of kindness, cooperation and courtesy.
PHYSICALLY: Our curriculum will help your child establish desirable health and safety habits, strengthen and coordinate his/her body through large and small muscle activities.
COGNITIVELY: Our curriculum will help your child progress at his/her own rate, develop independent thinking, problem solving, following directions and carrying out planned procedures to the best of his/her ability.
EMOTIONALLY: Our curriculum will help your child to gradually mature and properly express emotional responses, face and overcome emotional problems, and develop a positive self-image.
Here at St. Catherine’s Preschool we are building a readiness foundation for your child in the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, music, movement and art which is presented appropriately according to your child’s age. Monthly thematic units will be used to teach and reinforce all skills and meet our objectives.
