PPK - 3 Year Olds



St. Anthony Pre-School offers Catholic Christian loving, safe, family type atmosphere that children sense and respond to.
 
Our pre-school program focuses on the faith, social, emotional and physical formation of your child. Our classroom is center based where students freely move from areas such as math/science, writing, art, reading, dramatic play, sensory, and blocks. Each day we spend time working in whole group and small group activities focusing on math, literacy, creating, and social skills.
 
For your child's spirit... Catholic Christian values are offered to all children as part of their learning. Age appropriate religious activities will enrich your child's spirituality…prayers, songs, bible stories, holiday lessons, etc. We begin and end each day with prayer, giving kids the opportunity to share their prayer intentions.
 
For your child's mind...Our learning environment encourages exploration and discovery through hands-on activities.  Dramatic play, building activities, educational games, math activities, iPad access help your child grow both academically and socially.
 
For your child's body...The best way for preschoolers to learn is through play and interacting with their peers. We provide a wide variety of activities to suit all children's interests. An emphasis is placed on self-care and learning to care for our bodies and respecting others. A combination of small and large motor activities keep children moving and learning, and helps to keep young minds focused.

Lifelong Benefits
 

The gift of language is an investment that lasts a lifetime!  Young learners enrich their lives and open doors to their future by gaining:
  • An expanded world view
  • Greater intercultural appreciation and sensitivity
  • The ability to learn additional languages more easily
  • A competitive edge in future markets and the global marketplace


Full Spanish Immersion Language Program 


Young children are uniquely suited to learning a second language. The developing brain is hard-wired to acquire language. Never again will it be this natural or this easy!

Research shows the ideal time to learn a second language is from birth to about age 10 or 12. A child’s brain is still developing language skills at a young age and will literally create “more room” to support the second language as it develops. Learning a second language after this developmental phase is still possible, but new “space” has to be created to house the new skills. Learning a second language early is like realizing you need to add on an addition to your house while still in the building phase, instead of after construction is complete.  Parents are increasingly realizing the benefit their children can reap from the exposure to other languages and cultures.

Combine all of the research and reports and the outcome is similar. Any newly acquired skill, like the mastery of a second language, will bring about a feeling of self-confidence and pride, especially if a child has mastered a skill his parent does not have. This adds to the spirit of independence and even empowerment. Socially, fluency in another language allows children to be more open and understanding to other cultures. And, academically, learning a second language will ensure a competitive edge in the global marketplace of his or her future.
