We are thrilled to offer a Pre-K program for 4 and 5 year olds this year! I luv Jesus

Our program is designed to prepare children for full day Kindergarten by offering a five-day a week academic program in the mornings, with extended care options available to meet the needs of the child.  Set in a Christian environment, our program provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child's spiritual, cognitive, social, emotional, aesthetic and physical development.

Within our daily schedule, each child has opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving and personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through first hand experiences.  Play is the primary learning mode.  Children develop a positive self-concept through a balanced of self-directed and teacher-directed activities.  Opportunities for solitary play as well as group activities are provided.  The teacher is to serve as a positive role model and provide care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child's individual needs.

The Pre-Kindergarten Director/Teacher, Mrs. Stephanie Mueller is excited to meet your child and having them join our St. Paul's family!
