Curriculum

Experienced, qualified teachers present a curriculum designed to improve social skills, enhance cognitive and kindergarten readiness skills and encourage creative development. St. Paul’s Preschool applies a balanced approach which includes both teacher directed and child initiated learning with an emphasis on understanding and responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths and interests.
