- St. Mary's School bilingual preschool program -
We focus on the integral development of the child
St. Mary’s School provides an outstanding bilingual preschool program that focuses on the development of the whole child: social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and spiritual. Our curriculum is designed to help each child develop a positive self-esteem and to establish a foundation of learning.
The main objective of St. Mary’s School’s bilingual preschool program is to enhance the children’s social skills and self-image. In order to be successful learners cooperation, turn-taking, and problem solving skills must be developed. In addition, it is important for children to feel confident in their ability to make choices, initiate learning encounters, ask questions, and use their own knowledge.
We believe that the early preschool years of a child’s development are crucial years in education that set the stage for long-term intellectual growth and educational curiosity. Throughout the day students are exposed to several activities that enhance and develop fine and gross motor skills, visual perception, and social skills.
- Our Co-Curricular Activities-
Our activities and program are child-centered
Instruction provides activities that stimulate, challenge, and satisfy children’s abilities and interest. Activities and lessons are designed to ensure a child-centered and developmentally appropriate program. Although the curriculum is prepared by the teachers, it is responsive to the interests, needs, and developmental levels of the children. Topics and units are tailored to children’s interests and academic inquiries.
We recognize that children learn through play and meaningful experiences. Our classrooms are divided into learning centers where children are actively involved in learning. Therefore, structured activities are combined with free exploration and large and small group activities. These different activities will strive to foster learning experiences that expand children’s knowledge of the world and of themselves. Every child has the opportunity to enjoy success by actively participating in hands-on activities and by communicating in all ways. Students have multiple opportunities to explore and express themselves through music and art.
