Our goal at St. Luke School is to make your child’s first year in school a positive experience. These wonderful preschool years are an exciting time for children and we feel honored to be part of it.
The day begins with circle time where students say hello, pray, pledge our flag, and work with the calendar. The classroom is divided into centers where the children spend the largest portion of time in free choice play. They can choose between blocks, dramatic play/housekeeping, sensory play, math/fine motor manipulatives, art, library, and writing. So many of the skills taken for granted are still a process for these young ones. This “play time” is a stress free time for them to experiment with new materials and build these much needed skills including, most importantly, social interaction. The school day also includes a variety of literature activities in both small and large group settings along with songs, finger plays and movement activities. Children can look forward to daily large motor time in the gym and outdoors in the play yard.
For some, a large group setting of many children and 2 non-parental adults may be a new experience. The teachers will work with each child and their family in building trust and a bond that will bridge the gap to learning.
