Philosophy:  It is the Philosophy of the Early Childhood Center at St. Jude the Apostle School that Pre-Kindergarten should be a time that encourages the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth and development of the child.  Our program is Theme-Oriented which includes an Early childhood Curriculum that is based on the alphabet and enables children to discover the joy of learning.

Pre-K (3) Curriculum-  ( must be 3 years old by Dec.1st) Children in the Pre-K (3) program are just beginning to experience school and being away from home. The Pre-K teachers want their students to be independent and do things for themselves. Their goal is to teach them to respect their classmates; their space; and their feelings. They believe that the most important thing for them to learn is that "school can be a great place to be!"

Pre-K (4) Curriculum-  (must be 4 years old by Dec.1st) Pre-K is an exciting time in a young child's life.  It is a time of new discovery, new friends, and new adjustments.  Most of all, it is a time of learning.   The Pre-K (4) program is aligned with the New York State Curriculum and Learning Standards. Scott Foresman Reading Street, will be our guide for children in our classrooms they embark on this very important journey to school readiness.
