When you open the door to St. Helena's Pre-K, you enter into a wonderful world of wonder. It is a bright and comfortable room where the children are met by caring and nurturing teachers. The room is bright and cheerful which is a perfect environment for early childhood learning. The children even have their own kid-sized bathroom in the classroom.
The day begins at 8:00 AM. The students are dismissed at 2:20 PM.
Our goal is to build self-esteem, socialization skills, and communication skills. We also hope to provide experiences that build each child?s emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth.
The children work in centers, small group and large group settings. They learn about numbers, counting, letters, and sounds. All kinds of science and social study facts are taught. In music class, they sing their little hearts out and in art, they do all kinds of crafts. They learn about God and how to love and care for one another.
PreK students participate in weekly art classes, library, technology classes, music and physical education. They also attend the First Friday masses and participate in the annual Christmas play.
Through a variety of fun filled activities, the pre-schoolers are provided with opportunities to explore their world and acquire readiness skills for kindergarten. There are many hands on activities provided through the day. They are lead to wonder, discover, and investigate the world around them through creativity, curiosity, and imagination.
