The quality of the St. Peter’s preschool program is unparalleled. Both the Spanish Immersion and the Classic Curriculum tracks seek to significantly boost a child’s independence, competence, and resilience, while encouraging the wonder of childhood.
At. St. Peter’s, preschool is still a time for play and exploration, but also a time for learning classroom manners, making friends, and laying the foundation for kindergarten. Goals include working on gross and fine motor skills, recognizing numbers and patterns, enjoying the variety of language expression, and discovering science concepts like weather and plant and animal habitats.
The immersion and classic students combine for art, music, PE, and STORM science lab, which are taught by specialty teachers. Weekly chapel, guided by the school’s chaplain (who is also rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church), focuses on God’s love of everyone. This follows the Episcopal Church’s doctrine of respecting all faith traditions
Preschool offers three enrollment options: 3 days (M/W/F), 5 days (M-F), and 2 days (T/Th). Plans may also include afterschool care lead by the Children’s Discovery Museum, and activities like the PeeWee Pep Squad and Soccer Shots.
“Language is paramount. Every day we use language to solve problems, develop ideas, and establish relationships. Therefore, immersing young children in a second language is providing them with a tool they will use their entire lives. St. Peter’s is visionary in offering the Spanish Immersion Program. What better preparation could a parent offer a child?”
"Kane's brain is being stimulated in ways a traditional education does not touch. Learning Spanish in preschool will give him a global perspective and a real world advantage for future success."
