“Great school. Very friendly, family oriented. My son has come home almost every day with new knowledge. I am updated on what my son is learning in class and the expectations for the coming week. I love the fact that even though my son is in Pre-K, he has technology class (computer class), Spanish, music, and gym as separate lessons with other instructors outside of his classroom’s regular teachings. I am impressed.”

Preschool

Preschool focuses on the development of age-appropriate social skills including independence, cooperation, problem-solving, and responsibility.

  • In the classroom, we use a combination of large and small group activities, to aid in the development of these social skills as well as academic skills.
  • Students use a variety of age-appropriate and hands-on materials to help them develop and further strengthen skills in math, language, science, and social studies.
  • We are preparing our students with the foundations in these critical skill areas to successfully transition to Kindergarten next year.
  • We supplement our curriculum with learning opportunities outside the classroom through educational field trips throughout the school year.

 

"My son started pre-K there this year he loves it – very experienced and caring teachers, great after school program (soccer weekly, lots of run around time with the other younger kids). He is excited every morning. I’ve found the school size to be small and very attentive – there is a genuine love for the kids and community here. Very glad we enrolled….St Sylvester has been an excellent choice for my son. ”
