The Preschool program promotes the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical and social growth of the young children at Saint Paul School. Language is the development of communication skills that enable a child to share his/her world with others. These skills are achieved through listening, music, and finger plays, as well as alphabet activities and conclude with the writing of their names. Math readiness skills such as colors, shapes, classifying, patterns, numerals and counting sets are practiced using manipulatives, play experiences and story telling. Preschool at Saint Paul School also strives to develop life skills and personal development skills as well. Fine and gross motor goals are set for the children, as well as self-help skills are developed on a daily basis. Students at Saint Paul Preschool also benefit from extra-curricular classes such as Computer, Library, Art and Physical Education. Preschool children begin their faith formation at Saint Paul’s as well, focusing on God’s World, family, friends and simple explanations of seasons of the Church year, as well as participating in school prayer and monthly Mass.
