On the second floor of the church, we are offering two preschool classrooms. Children must be 3-years or older and must be
potty trained. Our Bumblebee classroom will be for
children 3-4 years of age
and the Dragonfly classroom will be for children 4-5 years of age that are
preparing for Kindergarten. These
classrooms will be arranged by centers and will follow both a play-based
curriculum as well as include academic and sensory activities that are age
appropriate and will develop skills necessary for Kindergarten and beyond. Snack will be offered in the morning, then
lunch at noon, followed by a nap or rest time and additional enrichment
activities before dismissal for the day.
We will continue
to have two classrooms of toddler aged children. These classrooms will be divided by a natural
break in age. The Ladybug room is 12 months (and walking) to 18 months and the Firefly room is 18 months to 24
months. Both classrooms will only have 8
children in them to start the year, with two teachers in each classroom. That makes it a super low ratio of 1 teacher for every 4 students.
We also continue
to serve children aged 2-3 in our Roly Poly classroom with two teachers and up to 12 children. It is not required that they
are potty trained.
The three classrooms
listed above will be play-based and include lots of indoor and outdoor play,
sensory activities, and social/emotional support. This means that there may not be a physical
product sent home each day with your child, but we ensure you that he/she is
learning so much during the time spent at St. John’s. Snack will be offered in the morning, then
lunch at noon, followed by a nap or rest time.
All of our classes
are offered Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 2:30 pm. You may enroll in
1-4 days based on your need and our availability. Enrollment in our program is based on the
school year, mid-August through the end of May.
We offer an optional 6-week summer camp.
You must re-enroll each
school year and summer and pay a registration fee.
