St. Rose Preschool (age 3) and Prekindergarten (age 4)'s Full Profile


St. Rose's is not for profit; it is a Catholic based school/childcare for ages 3 and 4. It is open to families of all faiths who have a need for quality child care in an atmosphere that is Christ-centered and academically challenging and sound. What is the ONE key factor that will predict a child's success for life? The child is a member of a STRONG COMMUINITY which means everybody (students, staff, etc.) is not only known by name; s/he is accepted within that community and is valued and nurtured. And in the learning community of the school the child is able to experience the mind and heart connection. With such a connection, a child is “free” to learn, thrive and work towards their full potential, growing in confidence and self-esteem.

St. Rose’s Preschool Program (age 3): Our mission is to provide a high quality, developmentally appropriate program for young children and their families. We strive to support children to reach their potential as learners, to help them find joy in learning, and to have meaningful experiences. We develop the curriculum based on student’s skills, needs, and interests. We encourage problem solving and emphasize process rather than product. Children will be given opportunities to explore their natural environment and to build on what they already know. We seek to build on fundamental skills in all areas of development that will set the foundation for future learning. We provide a safe and nurturing environment where children feel free to express themselves, explore, discover, and problem solve as they continue to grow in their independence. The structure of the day is created to help support creativity and deeper level thinking. Children are able to make choices and to learn at their own level during free play and self-directed activities. Teacher-directed activities are provided to help guide children’s thinking and to work towards certain goals. The daily schedule provides quiet and active activities, individual and large group activities, and child-choice and teacher directed activities. This will foster your child’s relationship with God. A variety of materials and activities are prepared and available to help provide a rich experience. Children will grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, as well as academically. We intentionally provide activities to foster literacy, language, mathematics science, arts, movement, social interactions, and practical life activities. St. Rose’s Prekindergarten Program (age 4) provides a strong academic program of basic skills, fosters a love of learning, and challenges students at their levels of learning with opportunities for success. Children are taught to love and accept themselves, others, and God. The curriculum by which St. Rose Preschool students learn is through instruction in: Religion: Religious instruction, daily prayer, caring for others, dealing with feelings, morals while providing lived examples of a loving Christian community Reading and language arts: recognition of names and sounds of letters, poems, songs, chants, nursery rhymes, phonic activities, stories read daily by the teacher, “show and tell” Writing: drawing, coloring, painting, and cutting activities, working on fine motor skills, practicing writing each letter learned (upper and lower case, left to right, and top to bottom.
