St. Raphael Preschool (3 Year Olds ) and Pre-Kindergarten (4 and 5 Year Olds) reflects the desire of the elementary school community to educate the total child. This includes a child's religious and emotional development as well as academic areas. Our schedule offers times for religion, music, language/reading experiences, math, science, gym, art and social activities. A variety of teaching techniques presented in the class setting allows for various learning styles and the individual's own pace.
All children will be exposed to all material, in hopes of expanding, not limiting their experiences due to gender, ability, or age. The teacher will encourage the children to "do their best" and their work will remain as they have "designed" it.
The 3 Year Old Preschool Program is in session Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:00am to 11:0am. The Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 & 5) school year begins in September and ends in May, meeting on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:00am to 2:30pm.
