We have a few remaining openings should you know anyone interested in our wonderful program. We want to say goodbye and wish safe travels to to Evelyn and Quentin and their families who will be moving out of the state this summer. Happy Summer to all!
We have been so blessed by Pastor Janessa and the time she has shared with our preschoolers. Today she shared the story “Wonderfully Made”, by Joyce Meyer. The children enjoyed hearing how Hayley the Hippo discovered that “God gives us all unique gifts. We just have to discover what they are.” Today the children presented Pastor Janessa with several bouquets of flowers as we thanked her and wished her well as she leaves Tucson to become the lead pastor of a Phoenix church.
Some parents choose to wait until a child is ready for a pre-k (4/5 year old) class before sending them to a preschool program. Once enrolled, they find the pre-k program to be a wonderful experience for their child, and we often hear…”I love St. Paul’s and wish I had enrolled my child when they were three to get the full benefit of both years.” The 3 year old program and pre-k program are quite different. In our three year old class, the emphasize is on social growth,
a vital building tool for future educational success. Many young children know their colors, some letters and numbers, but struggle in a social environment. Our three year old teachers have many years of experience working directly with this young age group. Many times, preschool is a child’s first experience in a structured setting with teachers and a group of children. It’s an opportunity to learn to share, follow instructions, and begin the foundation for learning success. Our program offers the benefit of essential playtime and also beginning the first step in pre-math and pre-literacy development.
In preschool, a 3 year old learns to feel cared for and secure with a teacher and builds trust with adults outside of their family. A quality structured environment encourages social interaction and children are shown how to handle conflict with others. A 3 year old at preschool will learn to make choices, learn to take care of themselves and others, and strengthen cognitive skills by engaging in hands-on activities that challenge them to observe, ask questions and solve problems. So, the answer is yes. Most 3 year olds will benefit greatly from preschool. Check out our amazing 3 year old program and see how much fun they are having.

Let us share with you what makes St. Paul’s so special, as we celebrate 50 years as one of the best preschools in Tucson.
To a young child, every day can be a discovery of something new. Preschoolers love to explore the world around them. Simple science activities help young children enhance this natural curiosity.
Science exploration in the classroom provides young children the opportunity to…
- Build self-confidence
- Engage in “hands on” experiences
- Increase observation skills
- Receive opportunities to use tools, equipment and familiar materials
- Problem solve
- Develop sensory, physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and social attributes
- Develop language through increased vocabulary as they ask and answer questions
- Just have fun
Science activities are incorporated into many of the learning themes throughout our preschool program. A small sampling includes mixing colors, making slime, learning the difference between salt and fresh water and its effect on floating, erupting volcanoes and discovering the wonder of dry ice.
