Our program encompasses a wide variety of activities and learning opportunities designed to meet the needs of each individual child. Our curriculum fosters all aspects of a child’s emotional, physical, social and intellectual development. It features an integrated, hands-on approach to learning. We strive for a balance between the development of language skills, social skills and perceptual/motor skills with art, music, movement, dramatic play, science, cooking, field trips and experimentation.
The activity oriented program in the Three and Four Year Old classes is flexible as well as challenging allowing for the individual differences in children this age. Social skills and language development are stressed. Children learn through planned play and teacher directed activities.
Informal group readiness in math and language arts is begun in the Four Year Old Class. The KFives program continues with more emphasis on reading, writing and math skills.
Each class participates in simple chapel services once a week. Larger, all-school services occur four times a year.
St. Paul’s has its own library which houses over 3,000 books. Literary appreciation and the love of reading are important parts of our program. Each class meets with the librarian once a week.
Our program also features weekly “Gatherings” of the entire school. We come together at the end of each week to recognize accomplishments, birthdays and to share simple class presentations and plays.
St. Paul’s Nursery & Day School meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm.
