St. Mary Child Development Center was designed to provide a safe, loving and creative environment for your child. Our curriculum is designed to integrate the concepts, skills and philosophies that involve creative thinking.
Children will be assessed throughout the school year to evaluate their progress. Lesson plans will be based around each child's needs and interests to promote developmental progress. A report will be provided during conferences.
EARLY PRESCHOOL AND PRESCHOOL
The preschool child (age 2 1/2 to 3) program is filled with a variety of learning opportunities that become the building block for each child. We focus on developing social skills and developing a desire for learning. We maintain a ratio of no more than 8 children to 1 adult.
EARLY KINDERGARTEN READINESS AND KINDERGARTEN READINESS
Active learning is the principle element within our educational approach for the Kindergarten Readiness child (age 4-5). Our Kindergarten Readiness program serves children who will be entering Kindergarten the following fall. We enjoy field trips, special events and parties throughout the school year. We maintain a ratio of 12 children per 1 adult.
