All of the play-based and nature-based learning adds up to a lot of kindergarten readiness for our students! With the use of The Creative Curriculum, a research based, early childhood curriculum, we engage our students in play-based activities that center on the early literacy skills, early math skills, and social skills that they will need to be ready for kindergarten. We do all this while encouraging physical growth, healthy risk taking, and faith in God. Students leave our classrooms ready to take kindergarten by storm!

Music, Art, P.E., and Spanish

In addition to the regular curriculum, your child will be exposed to several of the specialists available at St. Therese School. Students in their Pre-K year will visit the Music, Art, P.E. and Spanish teachers when schedules allow. All preschool students will have daily exposure Music and Art in their classroom as well. We very much value these experiences for children as they prepare for their school career.

Grandfriends and STS Buddies

Additionally, your child will also have the opportunity to play games and have fun with their “Grandfriends” at Deephaven Woods senior living facility, experiencing compassion through intergenerational interactions. Preschoolers also interact with older St. Therese School students through our “buddies” program and Virtue Houses. These experiences provide a wonderful leadership opportunity for older students, while our preschoolers have a friend and role model to look up to.
