Situated in the shadow of St. John Church, St. John Preschool students get to know the parish, priests and staff. As such, “their religion and church feels as much a part of their lives as school and home”.

St. John Preschool is committed to modeling and teaching Christian morals and values, while creating a caring and safe environment that fosters curiosity and love for learning. The program is designed to promote the emotional, social, spiritual, cognitive, and physical development of each child. St. John Preschool aims to create a warm and accepting environment that contributes to the development of positive self-esteem, as well as encouraging cooperation and interaction among children. They support the development of independence, self-reliance, and problem solving. Learning experiences are intentionally designed to stimulate creativity and encourage investigation of the environment.

Through play and directed learning experiences, St. John Preschool intentionally plans opportunities that support learning across all domains of development and are appropriate to each child’s age, stage, and style of learning.
