Learning Center (Early Toddler/ Pre-K)
Our goal is to prepare students to enter and excel in Kindergarten. The Learning Center not only provides students with a solid foundation in literature, science, math, religion, and the arts, but also the skills important to conducting oneself with confidence, independence, and respect for others.
At Saint Mary’s, we believe that self-confidence is key to a positive learning experience. By helping students see their contributions as valuable and worthwhile, we foster a sense of belonging among our students and help them see themselves as capable learners. We also encourage our students to explore their world and not be afraid of making mistakes as they learn new skills.
Our teachers respect, listen to, and respond readily to our early learner needs. We celebrate the small steps along the way to bigger goals, emphasizing the process of discovery as well as the final product, and encourage each child to exercise his or her talents.
St Mary’s strongly believes in the value of creativity and self-expression. We encourage our young artists to discover themselves through song, dance, and other forms of artistic expression.
