Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten

The Early Childhood program at Mary, Queen of Peace encourages curiosity and emphasizes respect for self and others.  The three or five day full day Pre-Kindergarten 3, Pre-kindergarten 4, and the Kindergarten programs introduce students to the school and prepare them for success for future learning.

The Early Childhood curriculum seeks to cultivate a sense of wonder in young children about themselves, their world, and their God.  It develops within each child an awareness that he or she is special within the framework of a loving, Catholic atmosphere.  In this environment, children are introduced to letters and sounds, counting, centers, and religion.  By Kindergarten, children receive instruction daily in language arts, math, science, social studies and religion.  Additionally, all early childhood students attend weekly P.E., art, computer, music, library, and Spanish classes.  This well-rounded program enables students to develop academically, socially, and spiritually, and encourages them to become lifelong learners. Each classroom is staffed with both a certified teacher and a full-time assistant.

Pre Kindergarten 3 students must be 3 years old by September 30.  Pre Kindergarten 4 students must be 4 years old by September 30.  And Kindergarten students must be 5 by September 30. All Pre Kindergarten/Kindergarden students must be completely potty-trained.
